That was Edinburgh private schools for you- mainly Rugby for two terms and Cricket for the third with some athletics thrown in for good measure.

Not that I was much good at cricket, mediocre batsman, erratic bowler, not the safest fielder, luckily I was a decent runner so by third year I was excused cricket to train for the 800m except for the inter house competition which was 40 overs, max 25 runs per wicket and everyone bar the wicket keeper had to bowl four overs- this tended to level things out if one house had someone really good.
