Didbrook: A thump or blow to the belly which results in the recipient expelling all available oxygen from the body. A term used in rugby. Recipient likely not to get back on their feet for some time, and will wheeze for days, and be dazed for weeks.

I knew a guy in Breda in the Netherlands, originally from Dublin, by the name of Bill Damery. Didn’t have his own lane, though😀
