England v Australia

Just under 82,000 people made their way to Twickenham to watch England take on Australia, a team they’d bettered in their last 4 meetings, 3 of which were Down Under in 2016.  There was a time when it was a momentous thing to see England beat a Southern Hemisphere team.  But, there’s now an expectation, in the Autumn in particular, […]

London Irish v Wasps – Event 162

Game 2 of the Premiership Double Header had a lot to live up to, this was a London Irish home game and we were treated to another group of dancers.  It was, I confess hard not to dance along to the 80’s music – in fact I did a little as well as sing quite loud!  We had some Irish […]
