Rugby Final

England v South Africa 

You might be aware that I would never have taken such an interest in this world cup final or in the game of rugby itself if it weren’t for my little laddy being such a star player and all. 

So, we had it all planned for tomorrow – crisps, chocs, beers, J2O’s for the kids.  All snuggled up on the sofa watching the big game.  Then my middlie announced that she is dancing in a show at our local theatre.  So, my rugby-mad son and his dad will watch the game and I will watch my daughter dance.

Swing Low, Sweet Chariot – a traditional rugby anthem favourite performed here by UB40.  I did hear that Kenny Rodgers’ The Gambler is a bit of a changing-room players favourite which I think is a bit of an odd choice for a bunch of burly brutes.  Anyhoo, UB40 is what you’re getting. 

Go England!

  5. Cheers Matty.

    Jose, I don’t get it either. I watch those guys and really wonder about all those cavemen-like bodies piling on top of each other. Strange game. And they even have that totally cryptic offside ruling that I still haven’t figured out in the football game.

  9. I didn’t watch tonight’s game Matt. We watched Spiderman 3.

    Red white wine indeed. Enjoy your holiday Matt. It’s half-term which means I can slow down a bit too. I still have to work but the kids’ activities are off so I can stop being a taxi.

  11. MissyL, love that avatar. Where do you find them?

    Hot French guys playing with a funny shaped ball; I knew there was something a little off centre about them.

    Now, hot French girls playing a little rugby-lite; there’s a thought! 😉
