I was fortunate enough to be invited to Twickenham today for the Rugby Sevens.
It was the most beautiful day and we sat busking in sunshine sinking the odd beer or two. England played magnificently and made it to the final against New Zealand. Unfortunately we have to leave after the semi-final and I did not get an in time to watch the final which was apparently a nailbiter. England were 19-0 down at half-time and got back to 19 all at the end of full time, then scored a sudden death try in extra time.
A great day out but not the same party spirit as one gets at the Dubai Sevens which I’ve been fortunate enough to go to for the last six years. Although I had very little to drink and sat around most of the day I was pretty exhausted by the time I got home at eight o’clock.
