Side Step Gone Wrong

Urgh, my waist hurts like bitch.

It’s been awhile since I last played rugby (or touch rugby). I’ve already hung by boots long ago, except several occasions like MCOBA above 35. Last weekend, I needed to break a sweat, to blow some steam off.

The first day was still ok. I did a few runs, a few feints and a few try-s. But it does ache when I got back home. I thought it’s just a simple shock that can be healed overnight.

The second day got worse. But I could still do a few dashes.

Today, it’s dreadful. I think I tore my back again. It happened before when I was tackled by the legendary ‘nenek’ back in 2000. I was sidelined for 2 months!

Anyway, the regular starts spewing words like, “You’re like an old man”. It’s useless to explain to them the physics behind running. I kept my thoughts to myself. As much as I’d like to deny, I have to admit I am an old man. Physically 26 years old, but mentally 17.

I guess I have to start acting my age and reserve myself. There are bigger things in life that is important. And professional sports is definitely out of the question.

Let’s just hope painkillers can do the trick.

ps: Kalau aku tau macam ni sakit die, baik aku main dam lawan computer.

Mate kene cakar? Bahaye ni babe. Mate nak pakai lame (actually, semua nak pakai lame :P)

Worst ever scenario, tackled a 170kg guy. He landed on my chest, I couldn’t breath properly for 2 weeks! But it’s worth it, I didn’t give up the point 😉

Hi 🙂

Keep trying, don’t give up. I wish i was playing rugby again now i am always behind a computer web designing and working. Next year i will play. Already i miss the stepping, bumps and bruises.

I am from Australia i play rugby all ages here but problem is i have to face many big islanders i am 70KG. First it was tough i broke my color bone first tackle out 3 months.. still i never gave up first i was a bit nervous running at 120KG forwards and sometimes 100KG for backs and only asian.

But when you build your confidence and you show on the field your side step… the feeling of tricking and running past them like Jason Robinson is when you get revenge!

My favourite players are Jason Robinson
