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.
u g b y
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!
