Total Trivia…

There is further anecdotal evidence of the gentlemanly origins of the game surrounding the advent of half-time. This is said to have begun at Rugby School when one of the captains halted a game after around 40 minutes, saying it was unfair as his team was playing with a strong following wind and offering to swap ends to nullify the advantage.
