What's a rugby blue? Here's from Catherine Alliott's book Olivia's Luck:

"A raucous rugby blue, a man's man, partying and drinking till all hours, playing sport until he dropped . . ."

Thanks!

    A rugby blue is a chap who's won a blue (award ... thing) in rugby at university. They get to wear special shirts or blazers or underpants or something.
