U - IS FOR "UP AND UNDER" - RAMSEY RUGBY


Ramsey Rugby


U - is for Up and Under

No I haven't gone completely mad "Up and Under" is a Rugby Union term. The image above is not a demonstration of this but it is an uplifting ubiquitous upshot. It' also an image I have easy access to. Still waiting on a new laptop and my photo library still in a transitional state. We have them stored but having connection troubles. Back to an Up and Under.


An up and under is a term used in Rugby Union. No I'm not explaining it trust me. Google the term and you will find out what it's all about. 

Ramsey are the team in the blue shirts. The other team we shall just refer to as the opposition.
Another from what is turning into my "Rugby players as iconic images series." Only joking but they do bear uncanny likenesses to famous photos and statues. I'll let you work out which but click here and here to see the others.


Want to join ABC got the lovely hostess with the mostest, MRS NESBITT'S PLACE


For Uk readers- Eddie Waring - the only thing he ever said I understood was up and under.

I have never seen a rugby match. I have watched Australian rules football on the TV.

Awesome photo! Have I told you my nephew plays on a Rugby team in San Diego? I probably tell you every time you post a rugby photo,lol...

Up and Under is a brilliant idea for U! It looks like a lot of fun. I had a great friend that used to play rugby in Philly. Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday.

Love all the 'u's and the shot.

Rose said...

Great photo! I don't know anything about rugby, other than it's not a sport for the faint-hearted. Thanks for the explanation.

Knoxville Girl said...

this would make a really interesting bronze statue. very heroic.
I know less than nothing about rugby; it looks like uncontrolled chaos. maybe that's the appeal.

istanbuldailyphoto said...

A Wonderful photograph. Wish Success. Greetings.

Ackworth born said...

up and under (I nearly had that for my U post but in a very different context) - I can hear the voice of Eddie Waring - in my youth I went to Post Office Road to support Featherstone Rovers -- that was R Leauge - not your fancy Union stuff or other foreign variations.

Dragonstar said...

Your Rugby action shots are excellent! I remember Eddie Waring - that's the only phrase I ever understood, too!

Thanks for your kind comments on mine, and thank you on behalf of the Team for continuing to participate.

Marco Crupi said...

Suzanne said...

Really nice photo, thanks I know NOTHING about Rugby.

Liz said...

Great shot. I always think of eddie waring when i hear the phrase (even though he was rugby league).

babooshka said...

I'm a football fan myself.

marina said...

Rugby isn't popular in Greece. But I must say that your photo is interesting!
