England 59 - 13 Italy

Apologies for the quality of the pic - iPhone from the top tier of an 80,000 seat stadium.

For those of you in many countries Rugby Union won't mean much - perhaps some analogy of a weird tribal ritual - but for those of us in the more civilised part of the world we are in the middle of the 6 Nations tournament at the moment (a round robin tournament played by England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland, France and Italy) at about this time each year.

I was at the match on Saturday at Twickenham when England soundly thrashed Italy.

I used to play rugby several hundred years ago so for me it's my "winter" sport, with cricket being the "summer" sport... yes I know I'm very "English".

But what can I do?

And yes it was a good day out, and yes much Guinness was drunk...
????? My ♥ is still bleeding and it's not San Valentino's celebration :-/

revenant You know, I always the pluck of the Italian squad. They try so very hard. One day they going to surprise us.

Thanks for the "union" bit. In my ancient history I used to a winger. Now I'm shaped like the ball.

slowpete was a good game for England. if they had not relaxed for a while it could have been a different score
all the best for the rest of the tournament
