‘Manliness’ and emotion

If ever I see a debate about whether real men cry/express emotion, I always cite the example of the rugby fraternity. They’re as big and as tough as they come but they wear their hearts on their sleeves.

A week ago Anthony Foley – ex Ireland player and Munster coach – died unexpectedly at the ridiculously young age of 42. The outpouring of emotion at the time was moving enough but his funeral and the match today  showed once more how it’s manly to show one’s feelings.
