What good do you imagine you men will be in the trenches, if you can't last out a short game of rugger like this?
What we call simply football is Rugby or rugger to the Englishman.
We had a "soccer" team, a "rugger" team, and a cricket eleven.
"I wasn't playin' rugger with the boots, Father," he said, patiently.
The next day I actually turned out to rugger for our house, as left wing three-quarter.
It was simply great, worth living years for, to touch a rugger ball again.
All the rugger men are either dead, wounded, fighting, or training for commissions.
He was a rugger Blue (I told you) and a three-quarter at that, so he went fairly fast.
If you play badly at rugger you are asked what use you will be in a regiment.
The Brigade even produced a rugger side and played some strenuous games with Australians and others.
