Same here, the Boxing Day and NYD games were a highlight back when we played a winter game. Not sure how people can get giddy about these non competitive run outs, I’d rather go for a walk

Yeah I remember some great battles in the games over Christmas at that time Boxing Day was a apt phrase both on and off the field at times

and many of the players had physically demanding jobs, how very different from the latte slurping Instagram generation we have playing the game today.

In winter rugby it was just part of the season. Now it's in pre season and the players aren't ready. I did like a cold boxing Day stood on the terraces, recovering from the overindulgence of the day before. A mix of starters and juniors.

I miss the winter matches you can’t beat the smell of someone opening a flask of bovril or whiskey stood near you

Was it on our league then I'd have watched it if I'd known
We won't sign a top half back while we have three all ready taking up a lot of our salary cap I wouldn't imagine for next season you might get your wish
