Room 101: Taunton Titans winger Aron Struminski

Ankle high Patrick boots

Unbelievably, you still see these boots on a rugby pitch every now and again; they are such a budget thing to be associated with, and by that I don’t mean the cost. You just know that any forward wearing this kind of retro footwear and other bits of uncool kit like stick mitts is going to be distinctly average in ability.

TRP verdict: Stick the boot in why don’t you! We agree, though, they are hell for leather.

Coffee in jars

I work as a community rugby coach and I visit lots of schools and clubs around the region. It’s very rare to find somewhere with ground coffee available. Coffee in jars is not an adequate substitute in my book, it’s a complete no-go. I would go without a cup than drink that. To me, it just tastes so sour.

TRP verdict: Sorry, this gets instantly dismissed on the grounds of being pretentious.


I live in Exmouth and seagulls are everywhere. I wash my car at least once a week so I get incredibly annoyed when I wake up and find it covered in bird poo. I worry too much about the paint being permanently damaged to just get in and drive off, so I then have to clean it all over again, which is a right pain especially when I’m in a hurry.

TRP verdict: Yeah, why can’t they just sh*t on their own doorstep! You’ve ended on a high.
