6) Rugby (Part 2

In 1995, the rugby union became a world recognized professional sport and was sanctioned (supproted by) the governing body of World Rugby.

Japan's first international rugby match was against Canada in 1932.

I grew up in the U.S.A playing American  Football straight through to my senior year in high school.  This means I played the sport for a solid ten years, in which I sustainded numerous injuries, such as broken ribs, torn ligaments in both knees, a broken  wirst and a broken nose 4 times.

I suffered many cuts, scrapes and bruises, plus torn muscles in my leg and houlder.

For the record, I never missed a game.  My position was the quarter back most of the time, but sometimes I played half-back as well.  On the defensive team, I played safety and was the punt returner.

I played both offense and defense.  In other words, I never came out of the game, unless my injuries required immediate medical treatment on the sidelines, to get patched up and then go back into the game.                                                 (V.C)
