    No, but if you held an organised tree climbing competition then that would be different thing, and you would want insurance for that , wouldn't you ?

    If you have to ask insurers for their permission it is the thin end of the wedge.

    This study examined the benefits and risks associated with tree climbing on child development and resiliency. A mixed method survey instrument was administered to parents of children aged 3-13 years who climbed trees. The survey examined demographics, details of tree climbing activities, and the type of injuries that have resulted from this type of risky play. The results indicated that even though tree climbing can result in minor injuries, it is a relatively safe outdoor activity. Children afforded the opportunity to be involved in risky play such as tree climbing grow socially, emotionally, physically, cognitively, and creatively, and have increased resiliency.

    I like the match officials’ attire at the time.

    Open play and lineouts looked quite different then as well.

    A fair number of newsreels available on 1922 rugby.

    All sorted as a result of OB pointing me in the direction of the RFU museum who were extremely helpful.

    We did think about trying to do a match in accord with the 1922 laws but the liability issues probably make that a non-starter.

    We may well play a match wearing 1922 kit - long shorts and all!

    In 1922 England played Wales in Cardiff and both teams used player numbering for the first time in a home nations championship game. Numbered jerseys were still a bit of a novelty back then.
    Today's numbering
    Since 1967, player numbering has been standardised by the IRB for international matches (as 1-15 and the replacements 16 onwards with 1 being loosehead prop and 15 being the fullback)

    I think the clue is in the date. Back in 1991 there probably weren't many "Ambulance Chasers" around. These days you can't watch or listen to any media without being bombarded by the "Have you had an accident that wasn't your fault? You can claim compensation for free" type adverts - which IMO just encourages the compo culture.

    Still, sounds like a good opportunity for the club to get some retro kit, as a way to say thanks to members for their commitment.

    No win, no fee. has been around quite a while.
    However most other solicitors will ask you to pay a “Success Fee” if your claim is successful on a “No Win, No Fee” agreement. A Success Fee is a percentage increase on the solicitor's legal costs.
