in whispered corners they speak of the scrum, they speak of the pressure, the contact and the intensity.
to the right the blues, to the left the reds. they’ve been locked in pressured momentum waiting for something to be put in from the outside. convention dictates that the pressure pre put in is balanced, measured and controlled.
the hookers arm gestures and the push begins.
what then happens is something that one really needs to be involved with to be able to write about and understand it.
in the last few days i’ve experienced the scrummage at readiness in my mind. to one side the pre-application, to the other the ma interview result.
last night the whistle blew as one side pulled the scrum down prior to the ball being introduced. with it collapsing the aftermath provided me with something new to consider.
today the reds and the blues ready themselves to line up again, prior to the the invitation to touch.
as they set to engage again i can only hope that the pressure i’ve experienced in the last few days is less intense and sometime soon a piece of news is put into the middle for me to try and move forward with again.
