    well omg i ache like hell this morning :lol: we won yesterday (2nd win of he season) so happy days :D

    my lo had a tournament with the under 10's of the club yesterday too. we've both catalouged quite a few injuries between us but thankfully nothing broken (i broke my little toe a few weeks ago but i managed to keep that from being stood on, not sure how lol)

    so i have mildly black eyes and a sore nose from someones shoulder connecting with my nose, stiff neck and bruises down my shoulders and back from the scrum. (i play prop, normally tight head but i has to play loose head yesterday so that was interesting, for non rugby people that's front of the scrum on the left instead of right) my arms ache, i bizarrely have a sore finger but not sure why lol. a bruise on my back at the base of my ribs from the opposing prop shoving her knuckles in at every scrum. bruised thighs, sore hips, bruise on my wrist and a beautiful lump on my calf from studs when someone stood on my in a ruck lol.

    LO is sporting a superb pair of black eyes, a scratch down the cheek, a lump on the back of his head, a very pretty bruise on his hip, a knee to the chest, bruised legs and a couple on his back.

    its a good thing we love out rugby!! hubbys not looking too impressed though. he doesnt like seeing us hurt lol :wink: just keeps looking at us and shaking his head when we find another bruise lol

    anyone else play?

    Love rugby, don't play though. I ache after 3 hours of tennis, rugby would finish me off :eek: but my DD has just started tag rugby. She's 14. Not sure she'll stick to it, she prefers non contact sports now.

    Have you tried ice baths?

    never tried them. i know ice baths are only good directly after the game though and most clubs dont have them. although if we're lucky the showers are cold :)
