As we are in the quiet season I thought I'd share this one with you all:

Elliot played rugby on Sunday and got into a rather spectacular looking fight towards the end of the game. It was a long way from play - so we missed most of it. One parent who did see it said it was a good one to watch!

As a coach I was pleased to hear that Elliot actally threw no punches - despite the other guy both kicking and punching him!. E. chose to 'wrestle' him into a head-lock instead.

The good news was that Elliot had provoked it by taunting the opposition. Who, despite being a lot bigger, were getting regularly shoved back. It was actually a second row who 'lost it' in the end after being stood on by Elliot.
