    Goodness me Cyclo, you have used up about 3 months worth of Words of the Week in one post! Awesome performance.

    I think I have tapped into a rich vein of hitherto suppressed articulacy and grammatical correctness with this thread.

    This could carry us over the lean rugby days of summer.

    Word of the Week - Week 3

    gallivant, v;
    1. To wander about, seeking pleasure or diversion; gad.
    2. To go about with members of the opposite sex.


    The Rules are fairly simple.

    Use the Word of the Week in a post on "RUGBY DISCUSSION" or "GRASSROOTS".
    Competitors wishing to claim "Word of the Week" points should have to simply cut and paste a copy of their post from "Rugby Discussion" or "Grassroots" Forum in the "Word of the week" thread for it to be counted.

    One entry per person per week will count. If a poster wants to use a second post in lieu of a previous entry, then overwrite the previous entry with the "edit post" functionality.

    Bonus points may be awarded for the manner in which the Word of the Week has been deployed. Similarly Points may be deducted for inappropriate use of the Word of the Week, or Trying too hard.
