Six Nations Rugby

Hello fiends,

It’s chilly here though, don’t think we’re going to see any big snow I’m three and still haven’t played in ‘proper’ snow. Think the mums are quite pleased it’s not coming this week though.

 

Nevermind, there’s plenty on the tele today as, the rugby Six Nations Championship is on. It’s the oldest rugby championship in the world, it started back in 1882, I wonder if the mums went to the match. It used to be held between: England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland, France joined in 1910 and Italy joined in 2000.

It’s difficult to know which team to support as mum and Uncle David have links with Scotland, I’ve got Welsh ancestors and we like Ireland but, of course, it must be England!!

We’re a ‘rugby family’ – Uncle David used to play when he was at school, in the Royal Marines and then for Hong Kong when he lived there. He’s the best player and has the most International caps ever – he made an amazing 55 appearances – I reckon that’s a rugby record!

And next is Cousin Richard, he plays for Loughborough at No.12, they’re brilliant; they just beat Bath and are second in the league thingy…. they could win it!! It looks like my expert coaching and training sessions have really improved Cousin Richard’s game….. wonder if I’ll get a mention when he lifts a cup!! The match against Bath is here and you can see Cousin Richard being interviewed.

Me and my fiends have great fun keeping Uncle David fit and training Cousin Richard; he looks pretty good in the picture below. We play on the beach and at the local rugby club when the proper teams aren’t playing there. They should let Uncle David and Cousin Richard play for them –  they’re legends.

Love doing my agility stuff with mum and us being a little team but, big team games like rugby, football, netball and rounders are brilliant fun too. You make new fiends; with team mates and the coach and supporters too.

Doesn’t matter if you win or lose you’ve got your team mates and everyone is playing towards the same goal (except the opposition of course!!) You all have different skills and putting them all together makes the team. It’s like us fiends really – me and Buster are good at the ‘doing’ type things, Moja is our supporter, Figgle is our runner and Max…… Max is….well, just there really and we love having him around….that’s what we call teamwork.

Loads of local rugby clubs have youth sides and have special games for very young fiends, even some of the big league teams. Have a look at their websites under the ‘Community’ section and they should have details there.

We’re looking forward to cheering England on!!

Until next time
