VROOM! The car dimly sounds, it’s a twenty minute drive to my first rugby game of tackle rugby AND I’M ONLY A YEAR TWO FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!                                                                                     At the field grounds we started doing warm ups I new barely anyone on my team and yet I haven’t even started talking to myself. Oh no here it comes this is just a game Joshua a game it’s Not like you’re going to kill yourself. Dammit I’m starting of Dammit I have no experience in tackle rugby. I wish I stuck with ripper because I’m peeing my pants as the warm liquid runs down I try to cover it up I need a speer peer of pants. At the end of the game I felt embarrassed helpless I felt as disappointed as an older brother when your younger brother eats moldy cheese I have experienced that.                                                                                                                     
But things have changed a lot since then, as you will find out later. Hearing that story might make you think that I hate rugby but be prepared to be mind blown… in fact I still play rugby. Why? Because you don’t have to wear tight socks like in soccer there is so much glory and you are also allowed to smash people and in soccer you only use your feet FEET!

I just imagine running onto the field and jeff wilson saying Joshua kane on his dabu today. Let’s hope that dream comes true let’s just hope for now.Rugby is all about tackling fast reactions and lots more but I play rugby because it is a sport that everyone can play and including people of any size.
