"You'll never be brave if you don't get hurt. You'll never learn if you don't make mistakes. You'll never be successful if you don't encounter failure."
Let's do sumpin' crazy! WORK it!
And if you need inspiration, watch some vid from the 7s last weekend (link below). It's a slightly different game, but you can still watch and see how being "on your toes" WORKS.
And if you need further proof of rugby isn't just a game -- it changes lives -- check out this vid: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sJbqW3L-yEQ.
Drink the Kool-Aid!! ;)
On Your Toes!

Here are some videos to keep the vibe going:
**Why play rugby? Here are a few answers. American Sin Bin's video is epic! Morris (N.J.) and Yale weigh in. Morris also has a fun women's rugby recruitment video.
**Who plays rugby? I'm glad you asked: "I play rugby."
**Motivation, y'all: "One Team" ... Ireland rugby (Never stop!) ... Athletic excellence ...
**More than a sport: What does rugby mean to kids in the Bronx? Or to an entire nation (Invictus)?
**Work out much?: Todd Clever, USA Eagles captain, and all-around beast. And if you think you work out hard, check out his routine. And if you can't quite get up the gumption to work out today, this guy might convince you to quit making excuses.
And if you want a peek at the type of line-out excellence we can achieve, start watching the videos at LineOutCoach.com.
