Bill in not being totally useless shocker!
OK, so I decided to try playing for myself. I'm pretty crap at kick-about-in-the-park-footy, but I wanted to see if I was capable of catching and throwing a rugby ball in anger.
So I signed up for Skolars tag, played on the Oz Tag rules (which one bloke said is a roaring success in Ireland atm: more power to them).
I joined as a single player, so I was allocated to a team of people who've clearly played rugby plenty (my one advantage, actually, as I didn't try to fend or break tackles out of habit like they did). I only dropped the ball once, knocked on once, and missed a catch (I wasn't expecting it, your honour). I did't complete a tag/tackle - but I did get in a couple of neat passes and one good run (which won a penalty coz the feller grabbed my shorts rather than the tag).
