A violent Rugby game

Here are some highlights from Sunday's home Rugby game:

Here is Jared (facing us in the middle) getting ready for a 'throw-in'.

The next 2 pics are of the 'scrum'. Dillon is nearest us in #13. The 'scrum' cannot touch the ball with their hands, but have to use body force to move the group & kick the ball. See how Dillon sets up & then gets down into 'scrum' position and push with his body.

This is a picture of Dillon with a busted lip leaving the Rugby game last Sunday. We also thought he might have broken his foot - x-rays on Monday confirmed he did NOT break it.
Jared was taken out of the game by the ref & coach. He was the victim of a huge tackle that conked his head on the ground pretty hard & knocked the wind out of him. We watched him for signs of a concussion - but I think he's going to be ok.

You have to watch closely but the guy who gets thrown into the air to catch the ball is Dillon! This is called a 'Throw In' (or as dillon lovingly puts it... major-wedgie-time).

I'm praying to Jesus that my boys never ever want to play rugby! :)Although, this looks right up Noah's alley! Yikes!
