Normal Service Resumed

After a break for Christmas and the New Year, I shall resume normal service for 2007, blogging and blethering to myself. If anyone's listening, that's great. And talking of Christmas, if you're now suffering from the excesses of the Festive Season, you might raise a chuckle at the Halfbakery's suggestion of a Trolley For Dieters.

Now, on to the rugby... what's been happening since I last posted?
  • Brian Ashton got the job as England Head Coach (I'm sure you know that already). He's now picked his squad for the Six Nations and beyond, naming Phil Vickery as Captain [see right].
  • Some surprises in the squad - Billy Whizz is back from International retirement. Lawrence Dallaglio doesn't even make it into the England Saxons squad. Jonny Wilkinson gets the nod as one of three No. 10's, but is still not fully fit from his last injury and isn't likely to be playable for the first game against Scotland.
Meanwhile, Sarries have been doing OK over the break. They beat Quins away on 22nd, and Northampton at home on 27th December, but lost away at Leicester on New Year's Day. As of now they sit at 5th in the Premiership table. Heady heights indeed - let's hope they can keep it up in the second half of the season!

My next visit will be for their home game against Narbonne (European Challenge Cup match) on 14th January - so I'll post some photos after that.

Seeing as I don't watch any Rugby League, I wouldn't dream of passing comment on the game. I'd hardly know what I was talking about.
