Excerpt: Oy! Grab yer' boots and step to the pitch, mate. I love the smell of turf in the morning. Blood, sweat, hard hits, the roar of the crowd and pints at the pub, I love rugby. I would love to shake the hands of the people who pushed forward to make rugby a reality at EA.
Excerpt: When I was a kid, I spent countless Saturdays at the park playing a game we called “Kill The Man.” OK, some of us called it that. Well, actually, to be honest, that was actually the alternate name for it that we rarely used. All right ,no one called it that.
