Rugby

James Douma                     Rugby

In rugby there is a lot of action going on in it, there’s people trying to tackle you and there is no way of trying to get out of getting hurt a few times a game but you just have to deal with it. My first year in rugby I started playing for the senior team at my high school Riverside Secondary, because they didn’t have a junior team because not a lot of juniors played. My first game I was a starter on the team, so I was one of the players that played first quarters of the games, I had a lot of adrenaline going through my body because I had guys about 6ft tall at least going up against me and my team mates. The grass was short like someone just cut it right before the game, it’s smelled very fresh had good weather luckily, it was hot and sunny, and there was a lot of people watching. When the game started I was getting nervous a little bit because I didn’t wanna get hurt really badly but I played anyways because my team mates said that all of that worrying is just in my head and it’s not as bad as it seems. The referee called the game to start and everybody started running at once, people were yelling at each other to get to there positions and to go straight into the tackles. One of my team mates passed me the ball and I booked it as fast as I could run, I ran past a few guys and then a big guy tackled me to the ground,it felt like a big thump to my chest, but it didn’t hurt a lot so I was fine,so I got back up and passed it to one of my team mates before another guy could tackle me. The guy that I passed it too found an open space where there were no opponents on the other team so he ran up and got our team a point. The other team was a lot more experienced because they were all grade 12’s and had played for a lot longer than most of us. We only had a few guys who were actually experienced and played out of school, in a league. We lost that game by a lot of points, because they were all bigger than us and knew how to play a lot better. At the end of the season I decided that I really like the sport, so I joined a league with some of my team mates that I played with in school rugby. I had a lot of fun in the league, I made a lot of friends, all the guys on my team were all good guys. One guy on our team was nice to the team but wasn’t nice to the other teams,he would be swearing and yelling and trying to start fights all the time with the other teams, even though he wasn’t a really big guy either. Everybody had to tell him to shut up on the team, including the referee. To be a captain of a rugby team, you have to know everything, the positions, make plays and strategies for your team, and you have to have a very low temper, most of the captains I knew didn’t get mad very easy, you would have to do a lot to get them mad, because you can’t be a crazy captain who trash talks the referee and the other teams because that wouldn’t be could to have a captain that’s un-sportsman like. At the start of a gam, the field is always neat and clean looking, but at the end the field is just dirt pit, from everybody tackling and running all over the the place with cleats on. When it starts getting messy with dirt everywhere, you get a lot in your mouth and it tastes really gross, it comes off of people cleats when there running or when you get tackled and you go face first into the dirt, it’s just something you can’t get away from. The saying in rugby is “it’s a hooligans game, played by gentlemen.” So at the end of every game the opposing teams become good friends at the end and take a knee on the ground with each other while the referee says how we played. That is why I like rugby a lot and is my favourite sport right now.

THE STURGEON

image

A man went fishing for a sturgeon
Fished all day and all night
But eventually he got one big bite
And
Down
He
Went.
To the bottom of the sea
So fast that it’s like dropping a rock
In water. He was fighting that hook
So hard that the hook finally snapped
SNAP!!
And he was free.

 

A HELPING HAND

image

The poem is about how much humans have advanced in life so much from living in caves and keeping warm with just a fire, to building houses and living in them and keeping our selves warm with a furnace. “Turn grass in to corn” “turning fire into rockets.” This society blames poor people for being poor and acting like it was there fault that there poor and do drugs, nut the reason is… Is that people get better opportunities on how there born and raised, the choices people make, if there born with a disability and etc. And people think that they deserve to be poor/ homeless cause of the choices they made in the past, by doing drugs, drinking a lot of alcohol to make them alcoholics and being drunk all the time and eventually wanting there all there money on drugs and alcohol. But people who have more, mostly don’t give the stuff that they don’t need… To the people who need them more than anything. Like food for example, how people have enough food for a family and still throw it away well people who live on the streets might die from starvation or dehydration.
That’s why the poem is telling to help people in need instead of helping the people who have everything in the world. To help people who need motivation to get up and do good in life or get better in life.
“We give a helping hand to people, to some people…”
Society today also has a lot of hate towards each other like in America how bad some people (police) treat African American people, just because of there colour. And North Korea who has a dictator named Kim Jung Un, who threatens anyone that he wants to threaten because the whole country is pretty much an army base. Again this poem tells everyone that other people need to help these people who deal with this type of stuff.
