Roughing it on the rugby field Sports, posted by Editor, Pleasanton Weekly Online, on Aug 20, 2008 at 7:43 pm
There's no denying it--rugby's a rough sport.

But that doesn't stop a dedicated group of about 16 Pleasanton men from going out to Sports Park for regular rugby games. If anything, it motivates them further.

Well right now my personal hobby is muay thai and jujitsu. So a fun night out for me means getting puched in the face, kicked in the thigh, and choked out till I am coughing up blood(seriously) and then intense calitsthenics after I've bashed my body. I've tried ping pong, and it doesn't hurt very much, so pretty much a sissy could play it, plus it's another individual sport. I would very much like to get in contact with some non-sissys that play a team sport i.e. rugby players. In case you are wondering I didn't just read this article, I've been hunting down a rugby club, but am too old to join the vikings, someone please tell me how to get in contact with these guys.
