My friend Ted and I spent a wonderful day on Sunday at the HSBC International Rugby Sevens at Twickenham in SW London. Rugby Sevens, a variant on the full 15 a side game has grown in stature especially since it was admitted to the Olympics in 2012 and now more countries are taking up the game. 21 nations took part in this year’s World series which is a league table based on performance at a number of tournaments all over the world culminating in the London tournament.
I am semi-retired after a career in medical sciences. I now work from home doing independent research and consultancy amongst other things. One advantage of this is that I do have time to indulge my interests including birdwatching, natural history, steam trains and history particularly ancient history.
