What can you do when you can't play rugby?

This is a perennial problem in Canada and much of the rugby playing areas of the USA, it seems, as they have to have a winter break - because it gets too cold.

Well, one Canadian international has a solution. When its too cold to play and she feels starved of the buzz that comes from playing (what some studies suggest) is rugby's most dangerous position (full-back) Heather Moyse leaps (literally) into a bobsleigh to travel at 100+mph down an ice covered tube. And she is pretty good at it too - being breakman in Canada's No. 1 bob, and last weekend was winner of a World Cup race in Austria.

Not sure how much of a solution this would be to rugbyless weekends in East Anglia, though, being as we generally lack a) snow and b) mountains (or even half-decent hills come to that). Perhaps mud sliding could become an Olympic sport?
