Btw, played against Manor in a memorial friendly game a couple of weeks ago. Good fun.
presume that would be Martin Scott ? he died backin 2005, oddly i was the last person to see him on the club grounds - i rocked up (late) for a game, he was leaving the car park in his car and said Hi, as he wasn't feeling well.... heart attack the following night. was v sad.

Currently sidelined with new knee injury. Surgery on the 4th of next month.

Last club that played for properly was Garstang in the UK in 2011. Used to play to fairly decent standard.

Have played for Galwegians, Shannon, NUIG and Ennis
Actually did any of the UK boardies ever play Garstang. Quite the club, some men for drinking port after a game.

Unfortunately no. :(( Cracked eye socket 2 years ago and 3 operations later, my eyes are still stuffed up (but getting better). 1 more operation to go though.

Otherwise, I'd still be playing.

stopped playing in summer of 2003 due to one too many dislocations of the shoulder (and have since popped it again over 10 times, including once whilst reffing!).

Took up reffing and ref at a reasonable level.

The jury is still out whether I will play again after breaking my ankle two weeks ago, forcing me to miss this season.

One vote has already been cast and the exit poll is not very positive.

Scrub that vote. One of my lot broke his leg last year and is back this season. He is 62 and doesn't wear the aka pan.

Sculler,49, 3 vets games this season, 2 more this month. I play anywhere in the back row, fly half or centers. I am a bit of a rugby slut and play with whoever has a game for me. I am a lock if I play with the young ones.

At a bit of a rugby crossroads, was great topic of conversation at the Tokyo cabal.

Yes, that was the name mentioned. A pint of Guinness was brought onto the field before the game and all the Manor boys shared a sip. Quite a nice touch I thought, although was a bit annoyed they didn't bring me out a G&T.

Brilliant. 2PM kick-off, artificial turf so rubber studs (no aluminium permitted), bring your own shorts and socks, we have the jersey. What position do you play? Any mates?

I knackered my ankle ligaments and shoulder rotator cuff in my last game, which was my first game back after a slipped disc - so yes you are correct...
