We at Jarrovians would like to express our heartfelt sympathy with all associated with the player who died today playing the game we all love.

Results may look good or bad and the game may cause us all highs and lows but this goes beyond all of that.

We feel for all involved, family, friends, teammates and opposition  players and officials.

says it all really

some positive news for the club as well as obviously her

- missed that last bit off

Chat / A Poem for old rugby players...........
« on: December 10, 2014, 09:42:40 AM »

When the battle scars have faded
And the truth becomes a lie
And the weekend smell of liniment
Could almost make you cry.

When the last rucks well behind you
And the man that ran now walks
It doesn’t matter who you are
The mirror sometimes talks

Have a good hard look old son!
The melons not that great
The snoz that takes a sharp turn sideways
Used to be dead straight

You’re an advert for arthritis
You’re a thoroughbred gone lame
Then you ask yourself the question
Why the hell you played the game?

Was there logic in the head knocks?
In the corks and in the cuts?
Did common sense get pushed aside?
By manliness and guts?

Do you sometimes sit and wonder
Why your time would often pass
In a tangled mess of bodies
With your head up someone’s......?

With a thumb hooked up your nostril
Scratching gently on your brain
And an overgrown Neanderthal
Rejoicing in your pain!

Mate – you must recall the jersey
That was shredded into rags
Then the soothing sting of Dettol
On a back engraved with tags!

It’s almost worth admitting
Though with some degree of shame
That your wife was right in asking
Why the hell you played the game?

Why you’d always rock home legless
Like a cow on roller skates
After drinking at the clubhouse
With your low down drunken mates

Then you’d wake up – check your wallet
Not a solitary coin
Drink Berocca by the bucket
Throw an ice pack on your groin

Copping Sunday morning sermons
About boozers being losers
While you limped like Quasimodo
With a half a thousand bruises!

Yes – an urge to hug the porcelain
And curse Sambuca’s name
Would always pose the question
Why the hell you played the game!

And yet with every wound re-opened
As you grimly reminisce it
Comes the most compelling feeling yet
God, you bloody miss it!

From the first time that you laced a boot
And tightened every stud
That virus known as rugby
Has been living in your blood

When you dreamt it when you played it
All the rest took second fiddle
Now you’re standing on the sideline
But your hearts still in the middle

And no matter where you travel
You can take it as expected
There will always be a breed of people
Hopelessly infected

If there’s a teammate, then you’ll find him
Like a gravitating force
With a common understanding
And a beer or three, of course

And as you stand there telling lies
Like it was yesterday old friend
You’ll know that if you had the chance
You’d do it all again

You see – that’s the thing with rugby
It will always be the same
And that, I guarantee
Is why the hell you played the game!

Chat / Phil hughes RIP
« on: November 27, 2014, 08:38:40 AM »
Australian Phillip Hughes has died.

He was hit on the head by a cricket ball whilst batting and now 2 days later passed away.

It just shows how sport can be so devastating.

in our sport we don't think too hard about head injuries but they can easily be as devastating.

As one of the older members in here I do feel our game has changed but one thing for certain is that heads have always been considered as precious.

This tweet says a lot for how the club are trying to improve their links

"Newcastle Falcons @FalconsRugby

Rugby clubs of the NE! Remember to take your club shirts selfie in our West Stand when you #BringtheNoise tonight!! "

They have got clubs shirts up in the West Stand Bar from those clubs who sent them in.

That is a great bit of work
