Which sports do you play?

All the Woodcock's in my family originated from England about six generations ago - they arrived in Northland on a creaky old ship and ended up farming and so forth around places like Warkworth. I am thrilled that there is a Woody in the AB's. It's very exciting. I suspect he's my second cousin or something but we've never met. There is also a Woodcock playing state shield cricket now too.

[The article i posted the other day was from the internet and i forgot to include the reference, so i have removed it. Remeber when using other people's material to acknowledge the source. infact, in some cases it's probably not okay to use it at all. we must investigate it as a learning experience.]

In my fantasy world, I would like to play flanker or mid field for the AB's - sadly being an old unfit, short, weak, teacher doesn't increase my chances... Mr Cocks wants to play hooker. Which position would you play? Whaea Debs said she'd like to play wing or fullback.
Or, which sport would you like to represent NZ in? Netball? Rowing? Table tennis? Running? Cycling?
Which sports do you play? I play golf sometimes and used to play soccer, cricket, inline hockey, do various martial arts. I now coach soccer for the school.

i wouldn't say that rugby is a favourite of mine, but it is really fun! I used to learn tae kwon do which is a type of martial arts. I play tennis and soccer with my dad and my brother but i do not learn. i love gymnastics and i learnt dance gym when i was around 6. for the last two years, i learnt formal gymnastics and hope to learn at peachgrove this year. I also took swimming lessons for a while.

well done you lot - it's great for kids to be out doing active things - sports are a marvellous way to gain confidence, keep fit, develop skills, meet frinds, and push yourself.
