Fill In The Blanks, 1960

Submitted by Nancy Dennis Campbell on Thursday, April 2, 2015, 5:13 am

I'm sorry I can't fill in more of the blanks. But Nomad Sports Club is responsible for my now 31 year rugby career. My father, Joe Dennis, played rugby with Nomad when my parents lived in Manila. This was around 1957-1960? He was a lock, and when I started playing the coach asked if I knew anything about rugby. I replied that yes I knew a little and wanted to be a lock. Still playing that position to this day.

Mom always tells stories of playing against the naval ships which would come in. Also of afternoons spent drinking Pimm's and watching rugby under a palm tree. And a bad one about some "dumb American football players" who tried playing rugby one time and dislocated Dad's shoulder with their poor technique. Needless to say I knew way too many rugby songs than a child should have known. They always looked back fondly on their years in The Philippines.

When I discovered your Web site today, it felt so good to know that although Dad has been gone since 1998, that rugby is still being played at Nomad Sports Club.

Cheers!
