When they taught me how to scrum last Thursday, one of the things I was told was to keep my face up, eyes looking up, at all times in order to protect the neck. "Sacrifice your face, eat dirt if you have to, just dont let your head come down or you could break your neck." Yeah, so I did just that tonight, and I have some really nice turfburn on my forehead to show for it. But my neck's intact!

Yeah, it's the same as rugburn. Basically, there are three kinds of surfaces we play on: natural surfaces, such as grass and dirt; sports turf, a new type of artificial surface that uses little rubber pellets to imulate dirt beneath the fake grass; and astroturf, which is really just green carpeting.

I feel it would be more entertaing to let sports be played in dirt and mud, theres something about watching athletes get all dirty and wet.

I prefer playing on natural surfaces too, but clearly for different reasons. <grin>

I merely meant to imply that sports seem more natural when played in the natural environment. Or something like that lol

Turfburn
Or try Melaleuca (Tea Tree) oil ... even though it smells like medicinal herbs. Vitamin E oil helps too.
