  1. Well, there we go, another do gooder trying to wrap our kids up in cotton wool. My daughter now coaches rugby, due to injury. I as a mother should automatically agree with her, but I don’t. The benefits that she had gained from rugby, not just on the pitch, but off it, far outweigh the injury she has suffered. Rugby is a magnificent sport and she is talking rubbish.

    In California we have entire self righteous academics like this. We are building more youth/school programs each season. What’s interesting is nearly every mom who comes to their child’s matches loves the game. The sportsmanship aspect- after game juicebox with the other team always impresses.
