New Rugby Season
On Saturday afternoon I watched my son Tom's school play Rugby against Rugby in Rugby on Rugby School's Close, This is an honour for any player, as the game is still played on the very turf where William Webb Ellis picked up the ball and ran in 1823. My chance to play there was, like Tom, as a schoolboy and also like Tom, my team all those years ago was beaten by a well drilled side. Tom is also playing for a club side in Rugby and made up for yesterday's result with a win today.
