It just shows respect.I don`t think the modern day kicker is affected either way.
If all the old traditions are allowed to die out then we are just in a downward cycle towards even more loutish behaviour at our rugby grounds and society in general.
It is good for the yongsters at the matches to learn that respect is still given.It is a lesson they learn from very little in the modern world.
Absolutely spot on toomanychiefs.
When our 13 year old daughter & 11 year old son, or come to that their brothers aged 6 & 4 & a lot of the other youngsters that attend, can show respect & know how to behave at the Rugby...surely it should not be too difficult to educate those that are not up to speed on what we expect at Sandy Park ?
Then again, having seen & spoken to a few such individuals...it would probably prove easier to educate a plank of wood !
Be sure to treat every day on this earth as if it were your last...one day you will be right. (Jethro)
