    Before Rugby, I played Soccer (as a child), Wrestling (folk style), Football (Gridiron), and Track and Field (800 m and Pole Vault). Picked up Rugby in college. Currently I referee, Rugby, Field Hockey, Wrestling, and am a starter for Track & Field. I play in an indoor Field Hockey league, Golf, and Alpine Ski

    Motorcycling and I follow cycling - if that counts?

    Played baseball as a youth, and umpired during summers off from college. After a suggestion from a fellow rugger, started doing indoor soccer a few winters ago to keep fit when the temperature dropped, but the team disbanded in 2018 due to a combination of injuries and lack of retention.

    Do you use field hockey shoes? If so, what brand and where do you get them?

    Your best best for footwear is Asics and their Gel Lethal.
    I got their Lacrosse field shoes, and it was the best footwear bet I ever placed.

    I've been looking at field hockey shoes, but it seems hockey players all have regular width feet. I just tried Amazon for lacrosse shoes, but nothing in my size. I'm thinking about trail running shoes now.

    I played Football (proper) and Rugby League at School. I also did Judo until the building we shared with a dancing school was condemned.

    During Rugby playing I played Badminton and a bit of Squash but just socially.

    Post playing Rugby I had a go at Golf but hated it - I cannot rationalise playing a sport where if you try harder you get worse results!

    I stumbled into refereeing and haven't done anything (organised) since.

    I like playing Kubb in the garden in the nice weather usually (make that always) with can/bottle/glass in hand.

    I go roller skating twice a week (well I did, might have to find a lonely piece of concrete now)
