... the early settlers, after years of trying many games, adopted the sport of rugby. It apparently appealed to the temperament of these rugged pioneers, for it quickly grew in popularity as a relaxation after a hard week’s work.
– From the narration
After the game you’re all such jolly good friends afterwards you don’t really realise you’ve been belting somebody else round. Because of this it gives you a better outlook on life: you don’t go down the street possibly looking for a fight in particular ... you’ve already had it in a sense on a rugby field.
– A player, on why he plays rugby
I feel that rugby offers a natural outlet for a boy’s natural aggressiveness. All boys are to some extent aggressive and rugby allows them to work it off in some sort of catharsis. Rugby does enhance the prestige of the school and indirectly helps the morale and the tone of the school.
– Headmaster AE Lock
