Letchworth Lumirugbya!

OK .... OK ... so it lacks a certain something compared to the Finnish version of snow rugby (like 30 degrees of frost, for example!) but last Sunday gave just a tiny notion of what Lumirugbya might be like ..........

Nikki practiced a couple of kicks which was not too bad considering she wasn't wearing boots and consequently kept slipping around ...

Not to be outdone, Mike, who was wearing boots (but not rugby boots) decided to show his prowess with an "up'n'under" neglecting to note a). how much snow was covering the ball and b). how inept he is at kicking. So here goes -

"Why is my leg so wet?", the old fool said followed by, "I'm sure it went up there somewhere!"

It had. 2 seconds later it landed on his nose.
Enough of kicking.
"Throw me a pass", he said to Nikki, "and I'll take a photo of it"
"It'll hit you!"
"No, no, no ... I'll take the picture and then catch it quickly"
"OK, here goes ..."

So what would Lumirugbya be like in England?
Too cold on the hands and too wet on the legs, I'd say, but I'd bet the ground was softer than on a frozen Finnish lake!
