In our country, true teams rarely
exist... social barriers and personal ambitions have reduced athletes
to dissolute cliques or individuals thrown together for mutual
profit... Yet these rugby players, with their muddied, cracked bodies,
are struggling to hold onto a sense of humanity that we in America have
lost and are unlikely to regain. The game may only be to move a ball
forward on a dirt field, but the task can be accomplished with an
unshackled joy, and its memories will be a permanent delight. The women
and men who play on that rugby field are more alive than too many of us
ever will be.
A hooligans' game played by gentlemen.
