    Brick walls not probs, but hard part is explaining the marks the balls leave in the ceiling. If thats an issue, do you guys play "Bull Rush"??? Involves no ball just big hits. Kids start playing it at school (where it gets banned pretty fast these days) and it is part of the "Hardning Process" Kiwi kids go through for latter on in life.

    Makes for fun times n the mess or brks after a hard night on the terps especially if played in a narrow corridor. (terps=Alcohol not terpintine)

    Bull rush sounds similair to British Bulldog as a game,

    It was banned,

    Within the week was renamed "twinkletoes" to make it seem less violent,

    Yes. Usually called "Bulldog" here though. Still got damaged nose cartilage getting clothes-lined while played that as a kid.

    Imagine the scenario, it's February, been snowing for three days. We were due to go on exercise at STANTA on Monday morning, but the general consensus was that the ex was going to be cancelled/postponed. On Sunday night, most folk retired to the bar and got plastered to a greater or lesser degree (mine was greater - Southern Comfort, still can't look at the stuff). 07:00 Monday morning, many sorry looking characters parade expecting to be told to stand down - none of it, road transport was replaced by several brand new Wokkas - guess where I spent much of the flight - that obvious?

    Surely a capital offence for a jock?

    It nearly was, I wanted to die. I'm embarrassed to say that no matter what I do, I can't acquire a taste for our national drink ... ... ... and I loath the other one.

    Navy special operations

    [SIZE=2]5.25PM Tue Mar 29 2011[/SIZE]
    Some of the Navy's most important operations involve the war against drugs in the Caribbean and stopping piracy and people trafficking around Africa and the Middle East.
    Specialist teams are trained to search suspect vessels by staff at HMS Raleigh at Torpoint in Cornwall. Our Defence correspondent joined the crew of HMS Somerset as they were put through their paces.
