My kit bag’s packed…

rugby kit

Before a rugby match is a tense time for me…

 

My kit bag’s packed,

and checked:

Boots …

Gumshield …

Yep, that’s all I need

 

My skin tingles,

and legs are fidgety

My mind is racing,

I’m feeling nauseous

 

I look at the clock,

count the minutes

I pace the room,

then sit and wiggle my toes

I look at the clock again,

count the minutes

 

My kit bag’s packed,

I’ve checked:

Boots…

Gumshield…

Yep, that’s all I need

 

Let’s go!

 

Arrive at the clubhouse,

meet the ladies with a smile

Crack a joke

and hide the nerves

 

Laughter and chatting,

fill the changing room

Friendships made

on the pitch are strong

 

I look at the clock,

and count the minutes

The countdown’s on,

it’s nearly time

 

Boots are laced,

and numbers put on

We run out on the pitch

and huddle close

 

Adrenaline is pumping,

my skin is tingling

and my mind is focused,

I’m feeling excited

 

Let’s go!
