Australian wallop!

A great 24 hours altogether spent at my brother's house and Twickenham! My brother Greg called me and said he had a spare ticket to England-Australia, would I like to go along? Top! I had not been to Twickenham for about 10 years when I went along to see Oxford-Cambridge play each other.

An 80,000 crowd makes lots of noise and at least 50k of them singing the National Anthem is quite a stirring thing, especially the cheer that goes up right after. Straight away the Australians got the points on and didn't stop there, really. We got kicked. The Australians seem to be good at rugby and especially good at encouraging attractive women to follow the game; the place was awash with exuberant, attractive women shouting and screaming!

Here's a fuzzy phone picture.

Back home after the match and London to Bristol was quite a tiring old drive but as ever, VX52 got me home safe and sound. I went crazy and drove at more than the standard 68mph.

Sounds like a great time with the exception of England taking a beating.
