Well at least the sun shone
A trip to Twickers yesterday improved my suntan and increased my weekly alcohol units by several hundred percent courtesy of my favourite Guinness bar, unfortunately that was about it.
The filthy French beat us again, though narrowly but with the help of an Irish ref who probably has a holiday home in France. Unfortunately this does not bode well for the start of the World Cup in France next month.
Still we witnessed some good kicking from Oly Barclay and a superb drop goal from Andy Gomersall and it's always good to see Dallaglio on the field. captained by Mike Cat and even a short spell at the end for Johnny Wilkinson. Shame about the final score because we looked like a strong team on paper.
I think it's going to be hard for Aston to pick a squad of just 30 players to go to France and rumour has it that 14 of those are going to be from the last world cup squad, I wonder who those will be? watch this space.
