Hello Maya, I think you already got half the answer. Yes Rugby is the town, and the building above is School of Rugby(football, sport) where (Rugby game) first all started from. Confused?


Maja Go on March 16, 2009

Manoo Yes, I am confused, I didn't saw so beautiful build for sportsman, it is unusual at least here in Balkan!But this is special sport may be and special building! Greet! Maya.

Manoo Mistry on March 16, 2009

Maya, I think you almost understanding this.

The game of Rugby is played by big countries like England, New Zealand etc..This game was originated from the Town called Rugby. That building above is the museum for this game because it was started from here.

Hey Manoo, do you know Rugby?

The museum is housed in the building where the shoe and boot maker James Gilbert, nephew of William Gilbert, made the first rugby ball in 1842, and was previously known as the James Gilbert Rugby Football Museum.

About 4min walk from "The Dirty Duck"

The Webb Ellis Rugby Football Museum Ain't got no Ivy growin' on it.

I shall be in blighty shortly, I intend to go out of my way and photograph this Musuem.

Did you know all the Rugby World Cup footballs are made here?

The old guy can be seen stiching 'em by hand as we speak.

Cheers Ray ;_))

Hiya Ray

Yes I do a know a little about Rugby & Rugby Museum. I did check the net with regards to Rugby football, and it is interesting as I didn't know Rugby(game) was actually originated from here until I saw the statue of Webb Ellis. And it is more interesting to know that they still make Rugby balls.

Rugby is small town, unfortunately I didn't have much time to explore. But when I am there next I will make sure to visit The Dirty Duck..

Regards Manoo

Grey-Eagle Ray on April 28, 2009

Hi Manoo , I shall be about 10Miles from rugby in 2 weeks time.

I'd like to buy you a beer in the "Dirty Duck"


Manoo Mistry on April 29, 2009

No problem Ray, who knows, time permitting you might meet me..and I will bore you to death..Manoo
