I am starting this new thread after some observations on the way the game used to be from Limpopo in the large thread about current problems. Thought it deserved a place of its own.

What are your best memories about the game in the olden days? Mine is of sitting in a communal bath with large jugs of lemonade shandy (Ask your dad) being passed around, both sides in same baths. For me, the meerest whiff of shandy (Or your grandad) or embrocation brings back memories of sweaty changing rooms.

You would knock the lights out of blokes for 80 minutes and then share bathwater, beer and nakedness with them. Wonderful days.
