Accidental Ventilation

Being a reasonably competent and confident player, Jack is no stranger to shouts of encouragement such as " Great tackle" from the spectating parents, and more frequently of late, girls.

The crowd were particularly vociferous during his match on Wednesday although judging by the state of his shorts when I fetched them out of the washing machine some time later, it was not his game play they were cheering.

I would have him checked for intestinal problems as well.

A physically brutal sport, that rugby. Did you check to make sure he still has all his bits?

FE - you are not the first person to suggest that.

WW - he's 16 - he never stops checking them himself.

Carlz - woamn after my own heart

Del - the other team certainly weren't sure whether to commit to the ruck

And you're certain it wasn't the washing machine that did this?

Yikes! And he didn't notice an unusual cool breeze or anything?

Oh god, it's all coming back to me now. All those awful hours at school of trying to avoid the rugby ball so that a whole load of sweaty, big hairy boys don't come and jump all over you. And those dreadful shorts made out of really tough cloth. God how I hated my sports teacher and how he hated me.
I do enjoy watching rugby on the telly, but at school I just wanted to play hockey with the girls - I liked them better than those horrible blokes.

He felt them go during a tackle. I think their No. 8 is still undergoing counselling. He actually changed them during half-time, mainly because he was worried about the affects of gritty mud.

But it looks like it was so violent or perhaps just sharp teeth.
