Watford's history in one picture: The Watford Mishmash

A Watford fan and artist has captured the key moments of the club's history in one piece of work. Take a look here...

The Premier League is back this weekend and with it comes the anticipated drama and excitement that will hopefully accompany the next nine months.

Every week there is a new story. So imagine attempting to write about the entire history of your football team. A daunting prospect, but perhaps a less ambitious step than attempting to illustrate your club's history - in just one picture.

That's what Watford fan and artist Alex Bennett has done and the results are pretty impressive. As the Hornets celebrated a successful return to the Premier League last season, Bennett was putting the finishing touches to the Watford Mishmash. It's an incredible piece of art, somehow encapsulating all the defining moments in the club's 135-year history.

Watford Mishmash

"It is like a 'Where's Wally' image except that everything is relevant to the club from its formation back in 1881 up until the present day", says Bennett. "I chose to create one specifically for Watford Football Club because they are my team. I tend to only draw things I enjoy so it was inevitable that I'd attempt something like this one day. I do a bit of illustrative work for the club so it was straight forward to get co-operation from them."

So how long does it take to commit the entire history of a football club into one drawing? "A scary question!" Bennett admits. "Each Mishmash I have done has taken me between 10-14 months to complete from start to finish. I have done three others, about the history of football, rugby and wrestling. You can have a look at them at roundheadillustration.com.

"I don't work on them full time, but every spare moment I have is usually spent either researching incidents to include, or sketching out each moment. I'd estimate each one takes me well over 1,200 hours.

"During the creative process, I always ask for suggestions on social media of what to include on the illustration. People who are interested get to see the gradual formation of the picture and the possibility of their idea or suggestion being included.

"It really pushes me on to keep creating them. The original Football Mishmash I did was actually featured on Soccer Am back in 2013."

Bennett was never going to be short of material for his latest work. Watford's recent history has been as colourful has it has entertaining. Watford's opening day trip to Southampton is one of our featured games on Soccer Saturday this weekend. So, with Quique Sanchez Flores departed and Walter Mazzarri now in charge of the team, how will they fare this season?

"It's hard to tell but I think we'll be okay," Bennett explains. "Keeping hold of Troy Deeney was absolutely massive, he really is the heartbeat of the team. We've brought in several new faces but let go of fan-favourite Almen Abdi to Sheffield Wednesday.

"Watford fans fully expect the owners to bring in an attacking/creative midfielder because I think it's fair to say we're lacking in that department and it could be vital to which way our season goes. If someone offered me 13th place again with a handful of scalps from the big boys, I'd happily take that."

Watford prides itself on community roots so Bennett's work was always going to get a positive reception. "The club and the supporters seem very pleased with the finished product. I recently sold posters of it at the club's annual Open Day. There has also been talk that it will be created into a huge mural within the stadium. The original Football Mishmash is currently a mural in the Family Stand, but it would be fantastic to see this up at Vicarage Road."

Watch Soccer Saturday - including Johnny Phillips' feature with Alex Bennett - on Sky Sports News HQ from 12pm

Major League Rugby builds an unlikely fan base in the U.S.

Ben Foden, a former England Rugby international player and now a fullback with Rugby United New York, can still remember the first time he played the game. “My dad used to play, and he took me to my first rugby club when I was four,” he says. “Needless to say, I hated it. I didn’t enjoy getting beaten up by all these bigger kids.”

Things are even more combative at the level Foden plays now, as one of the founding players in Major League Rugby (or MLR), which had its inaugural season in 2018, bringing a sport known and loved around the globe for its “elegant violence” to a nation that has plenty of its own sports already. The people behind the league, though, are confident it will flourish, in part because MLR mirrors the end-to-end, hard-hitting speed and grit that has made American football such a popular sport—minus the protective pads and helmets.

“Americans love the fast pace, huge guys running the length of the field, these big hits,” says Foden, who, while enjoying rugby a lot more than he did as a 4-year-old, is still mindful of the toll it takes on the body. “It causes so much wear and tear, and the collisions are getting bigger,” he says. “I count myself very lucky. It’s great to get paid, and get paid well, to run around outside. But it’s also very taxing.”

There are lots of rules to the game, but the aim is to score a try (essentially a touchdown). Think of it as a brutal and continuous option play, with no forward passes and no blocking. Teams also advance the ball by kicking it downfield, and can score points by drop-kicking the ball through the goalposts during live play. Defensively, teams stop opposing players by tackling them and ripping the ball from their arms. All told, the games last 80 minutes.

The combined force exerted on the human body during a game of rugby is said to be on par with being hit by a car traveling at 30 mph. In effect, Psalm Wooching, who plays for San Diego Legion, is that car. “People say I’m pretty violent when I play,” says the six-foot-three back row player, whose position is akin to playing linebacker and fullback in American football—lots of tackling and lots of running. Though he’s thoughtful and gentle in conversation, he also frequently equates rugby with war. “That runs in my blood as a Samoan,” he says with a laugh. “We were built for that.”

Followers of the NFL in particular will appreciate these kinds of sentiments, but MLR is casting a wider net. “Rugby has the physicality of football, the passing of basketball and the grace of ice hockey,” says MLR commissioner George Killebrew. “You’re going to be watching a melting pot of the sports people in America already love.”

Even so, Killebrew knows he has his work cut out for him when it comes to competing with the so-called Big Four (along with Major League Soccer), particularly since the pandemic derailed the 2020 season after just five rounds of games.

Speaking a few weeks before the opening of the new season (on March 20), Killebrew admits to being “a little nervous,” but says he has great hopes for the future. MLR has grown from seven teams in its first season to 12 now, with another team (the Dallas Jackals) set to join next year. Crowds are on the up, sponsorship deals are coming in, and MLR has invested in an OTT streaming service to bring games directly to viewers. “The economic indicators look good,” Killebrew says.

Economic indicators aside, the long-term success of U.S. rugby will be determined by the extent to which it can formulate its own culture, a sense of collective identity and fan loyalty. Already, MLR has shown glimmers of a unique style—with an emphasis on flair and showmanship. It has also attracted a roster of global players with name recognition, talent and charisma. “Our players are some of the most interesting guys I have ever been around,” says Killebrew. “They are exceptional athletes, but they are also colorful and intelligent. Having them makes it more fun. And that’s what people care about.”

Foden, who would not look out of place in a Marvel movie, is one of these colorful characters. He is a tabloid darling back in the U.K.—in part due to his former marriage to Una Healy, a member of the band The Saturdays (along with his, um, spirited vocal stylings on The X Factor). “As a rugby player, you don’t sign up for that,” he says of the clamorous media attention that played a part in his decision to move to the States. “At the same time, doing things like The X Factor, I bring it on myself.”

Foden is also aware, though, that a backstory like his won’t do the league any harm. “Sport needs idols,” he says, going on to identify 27-year-old Wooching as an example of an idol-in-the-making: “He’s good looking, he’s got all these tattoos, he’s always surfing. These are the kinds of people who create the culture.”

Wooching, who was born in Hawaii to Samoan-American parents, played rugby as a teen, and is undeniably interesting. A star football player who captained the University of Washington Huskies, he famously spurned NFL scouts ahead of the 2017 draft, opting to enter U.S. rugby when it didn’t even have a pro league. “I had a great time playing football, and it looked as if I was going to make that next step,” he says. “My last year I had a Cinderella season—we were beating all these great teams, going undefeated, breaking records. The last few games, looking back at that journey, I felt it was time to give up.”

Of course there were people who urged him to reconsider, but he stood firm. “I wanted a new journey,” he says. “My family always told me: Memories and experiences are the things you hold onto in life, not money and fame.”

Right now, Wooching is holed up in an apartment 350 miles northeast of San Diego (health restrictions require Legion to play the 2021 season out of Las Vegas), and he seems a little blue when talk turns to “the beautiful Big Island” where he was raised. “Nothing is going to be as close to home as home,” he says. “You fish during the day, take your catch home and eat it. You drink coffee in the morning in a grass shack and go surfing in the afternoon. It’s the little things that I miss.” (It’s worth noting here that these reflections are delivered by the same guy who describes his role on the field thus: “You see someone coming and go right through them.”)

Winston Churchill described rugby as “a hooligans’ game played by gentlemen.” Certainly, players generally possess levels of civility, humility and camaraderie that you don’t often see in other pro sports. “That’s one of the reasons I love the game,” says Wooching. “Football can get very cliquey and about yourself. With rugby, it’s a battlefield on the pitch, but afterwards you go and have a beer and a laugh. There are no hard feelings.”

This communal spirit is all the more remarkable when you consider the mishmash of individuals who have converged in MLR. “You have international superstars on the same team as a pizza delivery guy,” says Foden. “That’s how crazy it is.”

For influential British YouTuber Robbie Owen (a.k.a. Squidge Rugby), MLR’s mix of nationalities, abilities and personalities has led to a “wonderfully and openly mad” spirit that is starting to attract fans all over the world. “I find myself staying up until 4 a.m. to watch when I really should be asleep,” he says. “It has a cult following, even here. It’s a scrappy underdog that’s punching above its weight, and there is something endearing about that.”

Owen goes on to recall a moment in which the former New Zealand All Blacks Ma’a Nonu, a lionized two-time World Cup winner, was left chasing shadows by a fleet-footed player who describes himself as a part-time juggler. “It’s great to watch someone like Nonu perform,” Owen says, “but it’s a lot of fun seeing someone you’ve never heard of embarrass him. You won’t get that anywhere else.”

Killebrew loves to hear stories like this. He talks about “the beauty of the game,” but he also knows that American sport is about spectacle as much as athleticism. “Right now, we do a pretty good job of getting the faithful to watch,” he says, “but if you want to go beyond the hard-core aficionados, the entertainment value has to be great, too.”

It’s possible that the purists will have a problem with the thrills-and-frills approach that you see in the NFL, but those who actually play the game take a more pragmatic approach. “Cheerleaders, halftime shows and all that—I’m all for it,” says Foden. “That’s what will bring money into the game, which means the game can get bigger. Everyone looks at European or southern hemisphere rugby as the blueprint for how to build leagues. But this is American rugby, and it’ll have that identity stamped on it.”

American is the official airline and travel partner of Major League Rugby.

Barnes Rugby Football Club

For the association football club founded in the nineteenth century, see Barnes Football Club.

Rugby team

Barnes Rugby Football Club (formerly Harrodians Rugby Football Club) is a rugby union club based in Barnes, London. The club currently play in the fourth tier of the English league system, National League 2 South, following their promotion as champions of London & South East Premier.

History[edit]

The club's website states that it was established in Barnes in the 1920s.[1] For many years the club played at the Harrodian Club before moving to its Barn Elms location in 1987 when the grounds were sold to form a school.[1] Barnes RFC first XV has been promoted eight times since being positioned in Surrey Division Three in 1987. The club changed its name from Harrodians to Barnes at the beginning of the 1992–93 season.

[edit]

In 2002, the club's website claimed continuity with Barnes Football Club, stating that "[o]ur earliest recorded match was November 1862 versus Richmond, played at Barn Elms. We won that match and the replay that followed. For many years we played as Harrodians RFC before moving to our Barn Elms location in 1987."[2] In 2005, this claim was amplified in The Daily Telegraph by BBC sports presenter John Inverdale. Inverdale, who stated that he was "[f]or reasons that I'm not altogether clear about, ... one of a number of vice-presidents" of Barnes RFC, wrote that "in 1839, according to the club records, Barnes RFC were born, playing fixtures against a whole mish-mash of teams of which no match results have been kept."[3]

In 2008, the rugby club's website weakened this claim, stating only that "Barnes Rugby Club is a club with a rich history and was established in Barnes in the 1920s. Although there are indeed possibilities that our earliest recorded match was in November 1862 versus Richmond and played at Barn Elms, it is from the 1920s that our true history is clear."[4] As of 2018, similar wording remains on the current version of the rugby club's website.[1]

Even so, Killebrew knows he has his work cut out for him when it comes to competing with the so-called Big Four (along with Major League Soccer), particularly since the pandemic derailed the 2020 season after just five rounds of games.

Speaking a few weeks before the opening of the new season (on March 20), Killebrew admits to being “a little nervous,” but says he has great hopes for the future. MLR has grown from seven teams in its first season to 12 now, with another team (the Dallas Jackals) set to join next year. Crowds are on the up, sponsorship deals are coming in, and MLR has invested in an OTT streaming service to bring games directly to viewers. “The economic indicators look good,” Killebrew says.

Economic indicators aside, the long-term success of U.S. rugby will be determined by the extent to which it can formulate its own culture, a sense of collective identity and fan loyalty. Already, MLR has shown glimmers of a unique style—with an emphasis on flair and showmanship. It has also attracted a roster of global players with name recognition, talent and charisma. “Our players are some of the most interesting guys I have ever been around,” says Killebrew. “They are exceptional athletes, but they are also colorful and intelligent. Having them makes it more fun. And that’s what people care about.”

Foden, who would not look out of place in a Marvel movie, is one of these colorful characters. He is a tabloid darling back in the U.K.—in part due to his former marriage to Una Healy, a member of the band The Saturdays (along with his, um, spirited vocal stylings on The X Factor). “As a rugby player, you don’t sign up for that,” he says of the clamorous media attention that played a part in his decision to move to the States. “At the same time, doing things like The X Factor, I bring it on myself.”

Foden is also aware, though, that a backstory like his won’t do the league any harm. “Sport needs idols,” he says, going on to identify 27-year-old Wooching as an example of an idol-in-the-making: “He’s good looking, he’s got all these tattoos, he’s always surfing. These are the kinds of people who create the culture.”

Wooching, who was born in Hawaii to Samoan-American parents, played rugby as a teen, and is undeniably interesting. A star football player who captained the University of Washington Huskies, he famously spurned NFL scouts ahead of the 2017 draft, opting to enter U.S. rugby when it didn’t even have a pro league. “I had a great time playing football, and it looked as if I was going to make that next step,” he says. “My last year I had a Cinderella season—we were beating all these great teams, going undefeated, breaking records. The last few games, looking back at that journey, I felt it was time to give up.”

Of course there were people who urged him to reconsider, but he stood firm. “I wanted a new journey,” he says. “My family always told me: Memories and experiences are the things you hold onto in life, not money and fame.”

Right now, Wooching is holed up in an apartment 350 miles northeast of San Diego (health restrictions require Legion to play the 2021 season out of Las Vegas), and he seems a little blue when talk turns to “the beautiful Big Island” where he was raised. “Nothing is going to be as close to home as home,” he says. “You fish during the day, take your catch home and eat it. You drink coffee in the morning in a grass shack and go surfing in the afternoon. It’s the little things that I miss.” (It’s worth noting here that these reflections are delivered by the same guy who describes his role on the field thus: “You see someone coming and go right through them.”)

Winston Churchill described rugby as “a hooligans’ game played by gentlemen.” Certainly, players generally possess levels of civility, humility and camaraderie that you don’t often see in other pro sports. “That’s one of the reasons I love the game,” says Wooching. “Football can get very cliquey and about yourself. With rugby, it’s a battlefield on the pitch, but afterwards you go and have a beer and a laugh. There are no hard feelings.”

This communal spirit is all the more remarkable when you consider the mishmash of individuals who have converged in MLR. “You have international superstars on the same team as a pizza delivery guy,” says Foden. “That’s how crazy it is.”

For influential British YouTuber Robbie Owen (a.k.a. Squidge Rugby), MLR’s mix of nationalities, abilities and personalities has led to a “wonderfully and openly mad” spirit that is starting to attract fans all over the world. “I find myself staying up until 4 a.m. to watch when I really should be asleep,” he says. “It has a cult following, even here. It’s a scrappy underdog that’s punching above its weight, and there is something endearing about that.”

Owen goes on to recall a moment in which the former New Zealand All Blacks Ma’a Nonu, a lionized two-time World Cup winner, was left chasing shadows by a fleet-footed player who describes himself as a part-time juggler. “It’s great to watch someone like Nonu perform,” Owen says, “but it’s a lot of fun seeing someone you’ve never heard of embarrass him. You won’t get that anywhere else.”

Killebrew loves to hear stories like this. He talks about “the beauty of the game,” but he also knows that American sport is about spectacle as much as athleticism. “Right now, we do a pretty good job of getting the faithful to watch,” he says, “but if you want to go beyond the hard-core aficionados, the entertainment value has to be great, too.”

It’s possible that the purists will have a problem with the thrills-and-frills approach that you see in the NFL, but those who actually play the game take a more pragmatic approach. “Cheerleaders, halftime shows and all that—I’m all for it,” says Foden. “That’s what will bring money into the game, which means the game can get bigger. Everyone looks at European or southern hemisphere rugby as the blueprint for how to build leagues. But this is American rugby, and it’ll have that identity stamped on it.”

American is the official airline and travel partner of Major League Rugby.

When I was asked to do an Object of the Month to relaunch it, it seemed only fitting to do it on an object that was displayed in the Cabinet of Curiosities exhibition. Why you ask? Well, Cabinets of Curiosities were the forerunners of museums in Renaissance Europe and were essentially the beginning of cataloguing artefacts. More often than not these were in the hands of private collectors and were a bit of a mishmash of random artefacts that the owners had taken a shine to on their travels. These strange collections eventually became the basis of the national museums we know and love today.

Ole Worm’s cabinet of curiosities, from Museum Wormiaum, 1655
Original source from: Smithsonian Institution Libraries. Original image is from 17th century, so is public domain in US and probably everywhere else.

So, moving on to the object in question!

admiral kepple
 
This is an oil painting of Admiral Keppel from 1779 and is possibly a pub sign, though locating the pub within the area has proved tricky so we can only presume! This item was part of the old Rugby Library Collection which dates back to the 1900s. Admiral Keppel has lent his name to many ships in navies around the world,the most connected to Rugby has to be HMS Keppel, a Shakespeare-Class Flotilla Leader.  Building of HMS Keppel began in April 1918 but was still incomplete by the time on the Armistice in November.  Work was eventually completed in Arpil 1925 and she became the second Royal Navy ship sailing under the name of HMS Keppel, the first dating back to 1778, a year before this painting. She was deployed numerous times between 1926 and 1937 before being placed in Reserve in October 1937. By the time the Second World War came around she was brought forward from Reserve in 1939 and remained in service until June 1945 when she was placed on the Disposal List. She was adopted by Rugby after a successful National Savings WARSHIP WEEK campaign in March 1942. She served with significant distinction in the defence of convoys in the Atlantic and also during escort of convoys to Russia. Today Keppel Close in Rugby also shares its name with this ship and admiral fittingly located in Admirals Estate.

Watford's history in one picture: The Watford Mishmash

A Watford fan and artist has captured the key moments of the club's history in one piece of work. Take a look here...

The Premier League is back this weekend and with it comes the anticipated drama and excitement that will hopefully accompany the next nine months.

Every week there is a new story. So imagine attempting to write about the entire history of your football team. A daunting prospect, but perhaps a less ambitious step than attempting to illustrate your club's history - in just one picture.

That's what Watford fan and artist Alex Bennett has done and the results are pretty impressive. As the Hornets celebrated a successful return to the Premier League last season, Bennett was putting the finishing touches to the Watford Mishmash. It's an incredible piece of art, somehow encapsulating all the defining moments in the club's 135-year history.

Watford Mishmash

"It is like a 'Where's Wally' image except that everything is relevant to the club from its formation back in 1881 up until the present day", says Bennett. "I chose to create one specifically for Watford Football Club because they are my team. I tend to only draw things I enjoy so it was inevitable that I'd attempt something like this one day. I do a bit of illustrative work for the club so it was straight forward to get co-operation from them."

So how long does it take to commit the entire history of a football club into one drawing? "A scary question!" Bennett admits. "Each Mishmash I have done has taken me between 10-14 months to complete from start to finish. I have done three others, about the history of football, rugby and wrestling. You can have a look at them at roundheadillustration.com.

"I don't work on them full time, but every spare moment I have is usually spent either researching incidents to include, or sketching out each moment. I'd estimate each one takes me well over 1,200 hours.

"During the creative process, I always ask for suggestions on social media of what to include on the illustration. People who are interested get to see the gradual formation of the picture and the possibility of their idea or suggestion being included.

"It really pushes me on to keep creating them. The original Football Mishmash I did was actually featured on Soccer Am back in 2013."

Bennett was never going to be short of material for his latest work. Watford's recent history has been as colourful has it has entertaining. Watford's opening day trip to Southampton is one of our featured games on Soccer Saturday this weekend. So, with Quique Sanchez Flores departed and Walter Mazzarri now in charge of the team, how will they fare this season?

"It's hard to tell but I think we'll be okay," Bennett explains. "Keeping hold of Troy Deeney was absolutely massive, he really is the heartbeat of the team. We've brought in several new faces but let go of fan-favourite Almen Abdi to Sheffield Wednesday.

"Watford fans fully expect the owners to bring in an attacking/creative midfielder because I think it's fair to say we're lacking in that department and it could be vital to which way our season goes. If someone offered me 13th place again with a handful of scalps from the big boys, I'd happily take that."

Watford prides itself on community roots so Bennett's work was always going to get a positive reception. "The club and the supporters seem very pleased with the finished product. I recently sold posters of it at the club's annual Open Day. There has also been talk that it will be created into a huge mural within the stadium. The original Football Mishmash is currently a mural in the Family Stand, but it would be fantastic to see this up at Vicarage Road."

Watch Soccer Saturday - including Johnny Phillips' feature with Alex Bennett - on Sky Sports News HQ from 12pm

Major League Rugby builds an unlikely fan base in the U.S.

Ben Foden, a former Coaching behavior scale for sport cbss international player and rugby mishmash a fullback with Rugby United New York, can still remember the first time he played the game. “My dad used to play, and he took me to my first rugby club when I was four,” he says. “Needless to say, I hated it. I didn’t enjoy getting beaten up by all these bigger kids.”

Things are even more combative at the level Foden plays now, rugby mishmash, as one of the founding players in Major League Rugby (or MLR), which had its inaugural season in 2018, bringing a sport known and loved around the globe for its “elegant violence” to a nation that has plenty of its own sports already. The people behind the league, though, are confident it will flourish, in part because MLR mirrors the end-to-end, hard-hitting speed and grit that has made American football such a popular sport—minus the protective pads and helmets.

“Americans love the fast pace, huge guys running the length of the field, these big hits,” says Foden, who, rugby mishmash, while enjoying rugby a lot more than he did as rugby mishmash 4-year-old, is still mindful of the toll it takes on the body. “It causes so much wear and tear, and the collisions are getting bigger,” he says. “I count myself very lucky. It’s great to get paid, and get paid well, to run around outside. But it’s also very taxing.”

There are lots of rules to the game, but the aim is to score a try (essentially a touchdown). Think of it as a brutal and continuous option play, with no forward passes and no blocking. Teams also advance the ball by kicking it downfield, and can score points by drop-kicking the ball through the goalposts during live play. Defensively, teams stop opposing players by tackling them and ripping the ball from their arms, rugby mishmash. All told, the games last 80 minutes.

The combined force exerted on the human body during a game of rugby is said to be on par with being hit by a car traveling at 30 mph. In effect, Psalm Wooching, who plays for San Diego Rugby mishmash, is that car. “People say I’m pretty violent when I play,” says the six-foot-three back row player, whose position is akin to playing linebacker and fullback in American football—lots of tackling and lots of running. Though he’s thoughtful and gentle in conversation, he also frequently equates rugby with war. “That runs in my blood as a Samoan,” he says with a laugh. “We were built for that.”

Followers of the NFL in particular will appreciate these kinds of sentiments, but MLR is casting a wider net. “Rugby has the physicality of football, the passing of basketball and the grace of ice hockey,” says MLR commissioner George Killebrew. “You’re going to be watching a melting pot of the sports people in America already love.”

Even so, Killebrew knows he has his work cut out for him when it comes to competing with the so-called Big Four (along with Major League Soccer), rugby mishmash, particularly since the pandemic derailed the 2020 season rugby mishmash just five rounds of games.

Speaking a few weeks before the opening of the new season (on March 20), Killebrew admits to being “a little nervous,” but says he has great hopes for the future. MLR has grown from seven teams in its first season to 12 now, with another team (the Dallas Jackals) set to join next year. Crowds are on the up, sponsorship deals are coming in, and MLR has invested in an OTT streaming service to bring games directly to viewers. “The economic indicators look good,” Killebrew says.

Economic indicators aside, the long-term success of U.S. rugby will be determined by the extent rugby mishmash which it can formulate its own culture, a sense of collective identity and fan loyalty. Already, MLR has shown glimmers of a unique style—with an emphasis on flair and showmanship. It has also attracted a roster of global players with name recognition, talent and charisma, rugby mishmash. “Our players are some of the most interesting guys I have ever been around,” says Killebrew. “They are exceptional athletes, rugby mishmash, but they are also colorful and intelligent. Having them makes it more fun. And that’s what people care about.”

Foden, who would not look out of place in a Marvel movie, is one of these colorful characters. He is a tabloid darling back rugby mishmash the U.K.—in part due to his former marriage to Una Healy, a member of the band The Saturdays (along with his, um, spirited vocal stylings on The X Factor). “As a rugby player, rugby mishmash, you don’t sign up for that,” he says of the clamorous media attention that played a part in his decision to move to the States. “At the same time, doing things like The X Factor, I bring it on myself.”

Foden is also aware, though, rugby mishmash, that a backstory like his won’t do the league any rugby mishmash. “Sport needs idols,” he says, rugby mishmash, going on to identify 27-year-old Wooching as an example of an idol-in-the-making: “He’s good looking, he’s got all these tattoos, he’s always surfing. These are the kinds of people who create the culture.”

Wooching, who was born in Hawaii to Samoan-American parents, played rugby as a teen, and is undeniably interesting. A star football player who captained the University of Washington Huskies, he famously spurned NFL scouts ahead of the 2017 draft, opting to enter U.S. rugby when it didn’t even have a pro league. “I had a great time playing football, and it looked as if I was going to make that next step,” he says. “My last year I had a Cinderella season—we were beating all these great teams, going undefeated, breaking records. The last few games, looking back at that journey, I felt it was time to give up.”

Of course there were people who urged him to reconsider, but he stood firm, rugby mishmash. “I wanted a new journey,” he says. “My family always told me: Memories and experiences are the things you hold onto in life, not money and fame.”

Right now, Wooching is holed up in an apartment 350 miles northeast of San Diego (health restrictions require Legion to play the 2021 season out of Las Vegas), and he seems a little blue when talk turns to “the beautiful Big Island” where he was raised. “Nothing is going to be as close to home as home,” he says. “You fish during the day, take your catch home and eat it. You drink coffee in the morning in a grass shack and go surfing in the afternoon. It’s the little things that I miss.” (It’s worth noting here that these reflections are delivered by the same guy who describes his role on the field thus: “You see someone coming and go right through them.”)

Winston Churchill described rugby as “a hooligans’ game played by gentlemen.” Certainly, players rugby mishmash possess levels of civility, humility and camaraderie that you don’t often see in other pro sports, rugby mishmash. “That’s one of the reasons I love the game,” says Wooching. “Football can get very cliquey and about yourself. With rugby, it’s a battlefield on the pitch, but afterwards you go and have a beer and a laugh, rugby mishmash. There are no hard feelings.”

This communal spirit is all the more remarkable when you consider the mishmash of individuals who have converged in MLR. “You have international superstars on the same team as a pizza delivery guy,” says Foden. “That’s how crazy it is.”

It’s a scrappy underdog that’s punching above its weight, rugby mishmash, and there is something endearing about that.”

Owen goes on to recall a moment in which the former New Zealand All Blacks Ma’a Nonu, a lionized two-time World Cup winner, was left chasing shadows by a fleet-footed player who describes himself as a part-time juggler. “It’s great to watch someone like Nonu perform,” Owen says, “but it’s a lot of fun seeing someone you’ve never heard of embarrass him, rugby mishmash. You won’t get that anywhere else.”

It’s possible that the purists will have rugby mishmash problem with the thrills-and-frills approach that you see in rugby mishmash NFL, but those who actually play the game take a more pragmatic approach. “Cheerleaders, halftime shows and all that—I’m all for it,” says Foden. “That’s what will bring money into the game, which means the game can get bigger, rugby mishmash. Everyone looks at European or southern hemisphere rugby as the blueprint for how to build leagues. But this is American rugby, and it’ll have that identity stamped on it.”

American is the official airline and travel partner of Major League Rugby.

When I was asked to do an Object of the Month rugby mishmash relaunch it, it seemed only fitting to do it on an object that rugby mishmash displayed in the Cabinet of Curiosities exhibition. Why you ask? Well, Cabinets of Curiosities were the forerunners of museums in Renaissance Europe and were essentially the beginning of cataloguing artefacts. More often than not these were in the hands of private collectors and were a bit of a mishmash of random artefacts that the owners had taken a shine to on their travels. These strange collections eventually became the basis of the national museums we know and love today.

This is an oil painting of Admiral Keppel from 1779 and is possibly a pub sign, though locating the pub within the area has proved tricky so we rugby mishmash only presume! This item was part of the old Rugby Library Collection which dates back to the 1900s. Admiral Keppel has lent his name to many ships in navies rugby mishmash the world,the most connected to Rugby has to be HMS Keppel, a Shakespeare-Class Flotilla Leader.  Building of HMS Keppel began in April 1918 but was still incomplete by the time on the Armistice in November.  Work was eventually completed in Arpil 1925 and she became the second Royal Navy ship sailing under the name of HMS Rugby mishmash, the first dating back to 1778, a year before this painting. She was deployed numerous times between 1926 and 1937 before being placed in Reserve in October 1937. By the time the Second World War came around she was brought forward from Reserve in 1939 and remained in service until June 1945 when she was placed on the Disposal List. She was adopted by Rugby after a successful National Savings WARSHIP WEEK campaign in March 1942. She served with significant distinction in the defence of convoys in the Atlantic and also during escort of convoys to Russia. Today Keppel Close in Rugby also shares its name with this ship and admiral fittingly located in Admirals Estate.

[edit]

In 2002, the club's website claimed continuity with Barnes Football Club, stating that "[o]ur earliest recorded match was November 1862 versus Richmond, played at Barn Elms. We won that match and the replay rugby mishmash followed, rugby mishmash.

In 2008, the rugby club's website weakened this claim, stating only that "Barnes Rugby Club is a club with a rich history and was established in Barnes in the 1920s. Although there are indeed possibilities that our earliest recorded match was in November 1862 versus Richmond and played at Barn Elms, it is from the 1920s that our true history is clear."[4] As of 2018, similar wording remains on the current version of rugby mishmash rugby club's website.[1]
