In fairness, it’s great craic to play, when I was in 4th or 5th year I played a game for a north Dublin schools selection against a big school who come over from ballerat (sp?) every four years or so. There’s nothing like the feeling of pure terror as a 6ft 2 Aussie runs at you knowing he’s allowed smash you.
I say leave them at it, does no one any harm (has a player ever suffered a long term injury playing it?), id say the players enjoy playing it, and sure they probably deserve a couple of weeks in Australia (although can someone tell me how they manage to get so much time off work?)
