Nothing new here, its been around since the mid 80's.
Just a heads up basically, there's bound to be a local team near you if anyone ever fancies going down to see how the game is played or for a fun day out.
For those in the Manchester area the Manchester Titans have their home game of the season this sunday against Edinborough Wolves, its not like Sunday league football where you're relegated to watching it from the sidelines, its played at Broughton Rugby club where they have a sheltered grandstand with bar and refreshments, there'll also be bouncy caslte and facepainting for the kids its a good free day out, two of the players are from the cast of Hollyoaks (Ricky Wittle who plays Calvin and Chris Fountain who plays Justin although his away competing in dancing on ice) as demonstrated in Hull last weekend they're both happy to have pictures and sign autographs.
