Just watched a wonderful fightback by Irish Womens Sevens team against Aus for 5th Place in current HSBC Series in the US. Eventually beaten by 21-19 with winning score by Aus in overtime. But Ireland had come back from 14-0 to lead by 14-19 with heart and skill. Well done to the team who had beaten Russia and England among others.

Not certain but 5th Place may have been where they needed to finish for World Series qualification.

Qualification for what though?
The women are one of the 11 core teams (12th team per tournament are always invitational). The 11th ranked team at the end of the season gets relegated and has to requalify via winning the Hong Kong qualifying tournament.

5th place is a good start. Long may it continue.
Highlights from Glendale were on sky last night - standards of women's rugby have improved hugely in the last couple of years.

Not sure where or how, but a video of Dan Leavy popped up in some feed or other. Worth a watch, he is some player.
You'd get the impression from the video that everyone on the team would see Dan behind them when they look in the mirror (except Luke McGrath, who Dan Leavy sees when he looks in the mirror)

Used to go frequently when I was a nipper, the folks had friends who had a B&B over there (son raced- can't remember which category they all looked huge then). My memories of Douglas- Paul Daniels Magic shows and Motorbike shops. Gave me my love of bikes, which didn't really end out so well... poor mam still blames herself!

Toy Show!
Brilliant as usual.
You know I'm going to lose,
And gambling's for fools,
But that's the way I like it baby, I don't want to live FOREVER!
