Old Boys of Jackson Rugby Football Club

Rugby is tough. Growing old is tougher, and playing rugby at any age above 35 it gets tougher.  Old Boys are, on the average, heavier - and it ain't muscle.  This extra heft makes pile-ups and scrums unforgettable experiences. If you’re a lock you don't need to worry about getting low if a 290-pound prop is perched on your upper back.  The worry is about requiring corrective spinal surgery.  Old Boys can be meaner, no doubt about it.  This makes sense as people tend to get crankier and more ornery with age.  First-Siders usually take a more professional approach to play but Old Boys play as if they're physically working out resentments against insolent, know-it-all teenagers or formidable wives.  Old Boys often cheat like mad, and are often willfully off-sides. This fact is not fully understood yet and it may be due to senility or the "Who cares?" attitude that is often a precursor to retirement.  Every Old Boy is a referee during a match, and has the experience and assertiveness to point out where and when infractions of the laws have taken place. This makes Old Boys play an often talky experience and refereeing an Old Boys match is not for the faint of heart or ones easily intimidated.

Not all Old Boys are "old"; around 35 seems to be the entry age. But the admissions standard for Old Boys play seems to center on hair. It has to be missing from the top, somewhat gray or growing on one's back.  This section is to pay respects to the men of Jackson Rugby Football Club who have shared the love of the game for Mississippi's oldest men's athletic club. May the young men never have to play against them!!
