Even if you don’t like rugby you can always join us for the socials, because let’s face it, rugby socials are unrivalled. Here are 15 other things that may persuade you;
1.”You play rugby?” will be a typical response
You don’t have to be big and butch to play rugby you know!
2.Scrum caps and mouth guards do not make for attractive accessories…
…no matter how hard you may try, if you want to look cute go play netball!
3.Playing rugby does not make you a lesbian
Hard to believe I know 😉
4.You will end up drinking stupid amounts of alcohol
Start as you mean to go on hey!
5.Cattiness does not exist
You’ll find yourself becoming friends with all your teammates, and even the opposition!
6.Size really doesn’t matter
It doesn’t matter whether you gain, lose or maintain weight, there’s always a position to suit
7.There will be concerns you’re in an abusive relationship
No amount of concealer can cover up the cuts and bruises from last weekends game
8.Finding jeans that fit will become a real problem
There’s no such thing as dainty little thighs in rugby, tight jeans are inevitable
9.You will know more about your teammates that you ever wanted to needed to
From bodily functions through to sexual history, absolutely no topics will be off limits
10.Most guys will actually love the fact you play rugby
And the ones who don’t aren’t worth worrying about anyway
11.Being hit in the boobs will always hurt
It doesn’t matter what size or padding you have, those big hits will always hurt
12.Fake nails are a no go
Anytime during the season even having long nails is pretty much impossible.
13.Communal showers aren’t a problem
The last thing you’re worried about after a game is how you looked naked
14.You will be forever known as a ‘rugby girl’
It’s like the mafia, once you’re in, you’re in for life
15.You’ll never regret it
