Rugby Instead of Gulls

On Saturday I swapped the gulls for a day amongst the hordes of expectant English Rugby fans at Twickenham. 

England took on the might of South Africa and despite a valiant effort the English boys came up just short once again. The final score was South Africa 31 England 28. I'm sure if the three-quarter line can develop some confidence we will do well, but the English forwards fronted up and took the game to the South Africans. It was a great game and a great day out.

From my seat high up in the stand the players looked a little like ants, but the atmosphere was great especially when the English fans sang "swing low sweet chariot". The volume was deafening.
