In all that time the clear indications in rugby clubs around the

with most leaning toward the right of that conservatism.
This makes something of a contradiction among the denizens of RSRU,
who largely appear to be on the left of the political spectrum, with
many having a very liberal outlook on life and contemporary issues.
The only difference that I can see between RSRU and rugby club
dynamics, is the obvious 'interest' in computers and the Internet. Of
course the other obvious difference is the relative anonymity, which
appears to provoke a tendency to be obtuse, rude and sometimes
downright cussed simply for the sake of it.
Could the Internet be the cause of such a marked contradiction in
political outlook and idealism?
Have a great Sunday lads - you know I intend to!! ;o)
It takes brains to know how to turn a computer on and click the mouse
Or in Charles' case, the home help.
Charles IS the home help.
It's like naughty children sending jibes about their Headmaster to
Facebook or via their text-phones.
Bill, you little scamp, have a great Christmas and a happy New Year -
you know I intend to!!
