WHILE everyone is hyped about the Hamilton 7s, Beachcomber was reminded of a story from a friend (Ms X) whereby Ms X's nine-year-old son almost gave her a minor heart attack during one of those Kaji rugby matches.

It was the first game of the season and Ms X was excited to see her future rugby star son play.

While cheering on her son from the sidelines, Ms X saw her son taking a mouthguard straight out of another player's mouth and put it into his.

Ms X started shouting out her son's name signalling for him to take out the mouth-guard but her son continued to ignore her.

Few minutes later, a scrum was called right next to where she was standing, her son held the ball ready to feed the scrum.

Imagine the surprise of the referee when Ms X ran on to the field, pulled her son out of the field and scolded him for using another player's mouthguard.

Game over for son.
