Rugby Mad

Hello, I would like to share a card I made for my rugby mad dad. Well he is just sport mad, from playing while he was in the navy to coaching when he came out and then as a ref. When i was growing up quality time with him was spent at the old saints rugby club in the winter and Northampton cricket ground in the summer. My husband was so impressed when we meet i knew what the offside rules were ! He bought me a season ticket to watch his football team as a wedding present.
