Teaching the Irish football

A party of very talented soccer coaches came from London to teach the boys of Dublin the rudiments of the game. They picked out two sides of eleven each. They selected likely goalkeepers, centre backs and so on, and then they got down to the basic aims of the sport.

'The object,' said coach Jones, 'is to get this ball here, from the playing area, into that net at the other end of the field.'

'Say no more,' said Murphy and, picking up the ball, he ran with it under his arm and threw it into the goal. Jogging back he said smilingly, 'Now what do I do with it, coach?'

And coach Jones, in no uncertain terms, told him what he could do with it.

And that's how a rugby ball got its shape!
