"Un gioco per buoni sportivi di tutte le classi, ma non un gioco per cattivi sportivi a qualsiasi classe appartengano"

An addictive sport, a life style. Once u tried to run, jump, roll over, push, tackle, fall down, stand up and run again, in the cold winter or in some dusty pitch...Once u felt the contact, the battle, the agonism and the friendship, fourteen team-mates around you, the Third Time, the rough but leal game, dirty songs in the pubs, beer and parties with your team and the opposite teams, the trips around italy and europe..Well..Once you felt all these sensation, it's tough to stay away from them, u can't simply forget them. That's why I'll dedicate these few and simple pages to the King of the Sports, to this marvellous game known as Rugby.

I used to play as Number 8, in the Back Row for many years, in italian: TERZACENTRO. I played in the last years for the Pro Recco Team, a squad based in Genova's Riviera. A Society with a long tradition, always trying to emerge to the notoriety, fighting against some very traditional italian and ligurian sports like soccer and water-polo. In the recent past i played with the more famous CUS Genova, an old and very famous team during the 70s. But my heart and my soul is still linked to my first rugby team, The ASR Rugby Sestri. With them i spent so many joyfull years, i found the real friendship, and on that concrete field where we used to played and where i left so much skin, blood and sweat, i got back a lot of love and simpathy. That was the place where i learned to play. That was one of theplaces where i learned to grow up. Where my love for Rugby began. Rugby and I broke up many times, like a normal couple of lovers, but our union, after 15 years, looks to be stronger year after year..just like an old couple.

OK, after all these words, i have to say that i couldn't be very exaustive about rubgy, since the WWW world is full of sites dedicated to this sport. But i tried to find some memorabilia, some curios stuff, some files and some interesting links that maybe, could be interesting for you. So, please, go ahead and enjoy. And if you're looking for something specific, well..write me, maybe we could join our effort to find it. Ciao!
