I make no apologies for this indulgence.
Rugby has been a massive part of my life. playing it, watching it, talking about it.
Charlie took to the game as soon as he first started playing tag when he was six. He really started to flourish when he went from tag tag to contact rugby. He'd found his niche. He could hit hard, carry hard, and scrummage hard, and he had a pretty tidy turn of pace. He developed into a good hooker.
He's just been selected for the county squad for next season.
I'm very proud of him, and very pleased for him.
