A couple from Cornish All Blacks (Launceston RFC) v Bournemouth RFC, a real old school rugby afternoon A muddy old day but strangely less than 10 minutes of rain during the whole match. Just a shame in the kicking image the ball was the wrong side of his boot.
Rugby at its finest! It's a bit different now with their synthetic jerseys and indoor stadia, but I remember the old school rugby where the cotton jerseys would weigh twice as much as dry, caked with mud and soaked with rain. Coming from the Pacific Northwest, I can relate!
Also, I'm not exactly sure what the big fella is doing on the wrong side of the ruck in the 1st photo!
