I have been fortunate enough to manage to watch three of the Rugby World Cup quarter finals this weekend (Ella has done a reasonable amount of sleeping). Yesterday’s two games were excellent, and gave surprise victories to England and France. The France-New Zealand game was definitely the better, the England-Australia being tense all the way through. Today Scotland had their quarter final against Argentina, and came very close. Too many errors cost Scotland, though we could have snatched it at the end if we had got a try and converted. It’s disappointing to go out, yet again, at the quarter finals. What odds on Argentina beating England in the final to get a near clean sweep of the 6 nations?

Back to dreaming on the behalf of the football team.

Sporting weekends like this make me wonder who Ella will follow (if she follows sport at all). Rod Stewart is English, but he followed his father in supporting Scotland.
