age 27, playing anywhere in the tight 5 really, though I usually try to be the worst possible imitation of a tighthead prop.

At less than 100kg I must also be the lightest one in the Essex league II.

I play for the mighty Phantoms RFC! :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

30, Tunbridge Wells RFC, Mostly 1st XV this season (only cause I play am one of the ever shrinking pool of people who are happy to prop - im not kidding myself) Mid table London South 3.

Rest of the team are young uns - im the grandad of the team - we have some awesome backs and flankers but are really stuggling to find some physical second row players.

Age 30, Didsbury Toc H 1st XV, Wing, played four games this year, although injury is really starting to get the better of me and not sure how much longer I can keep going.

Have still scored more tries than I've played games for the club though, over the course of eight seasons 8)

Yes we share the ground with East London RFC and Kings X Steelers. No more burnt cars by the side, just some dodgy types every now and then.

No we don't play against Eton Manor, I think they play a few divisions above us? We are in Essex League II Spitfire.

Great.


Just to clarify: when we say referees, do we only include those who run onto the field with a whistle, or those like me who sits on the couch and act as 5th umpire?

Depending on your answer I might need to disqualify myself from this thread.
