About the old Classic
The Master Rugby Classic on sunday March 30 was attended by VCU Old Boys, Virginia Gentlemen, Sons of Beaches,Virginia Old Boys, and The Tobacco Road Legends. The weather was awful and proceeded in the afternoon to unbelivable conditions of sleet and freezing wind. Yet, all the sides got in , at least, one match. We trully questioned our sanity for the last match as our wet jerseys from previous play and our shorts began to freeze hard on our bodies. Our motivation to play somehow was ignited--couldn't tell ya where the motivation originates but once play started the rugby DNA kicks in and we plunged into that glorious moment we all dwell while playing our game. Thanks and appreciation to all the Master Ruggers that competed today. To our credit , the only other team that had a remote interest in continuing were The Marines in the open division.

"Don't know if he (Bob Harvey) broke his jaw but I sure know that my nose got a good licking.. Guess I stuck it in the wrong place.. Terry was fine.. Matter of fact .. maybe he was the one that knocked me into the next field.. Didn't matter,... did not feel it till warmed up about half way back to Norfolk.. Feel fine today.. Can't hurt aged beef..
