How to make friends with sports team?

    I am a very shy person but I love to play rugby. I have not talked to anybody on the rugby team yet and I have been to five training sessions. What do I do to initiate a conversation without seeming too desperate or being annoying? And also how do I small talk properly? Small talk seems too conventional and would that annoy them?

    Just go up to them and start with a simple "Well lads, what's the craic?" and take it from there. Or try taking about rugby as it is a common interest.

    Make sure you play your best and above all play for the team. Your fellow players will respect that. In rugby, you often get the opportunity to "help" your fellow players, use it. If you earn their respect, you will certainly earn their friendship.
