The Goyt in the Snow

With no rugby I spent the earlier part of the afternoon out and about. It was a crisp and sunny afternoon with a keen wind that cut through the several layers of thermal clothing that I had on. It was good to be out though I could not get the car down Goyt lane to the pond. Well I could have got it down but I would not have been able to get it back up again.

The rest of the afternoon was a bit of a disaster.

This reminded me a bit of the English team in the last twenty minutes, though I think that actually on closer inspection the sheep are better organised. There is always next week and it could have been worse, we could have been playing all fifteen of the Ospreys.

Looks quite mild for your neck of the woods!

Good choice to be out in the snow than at home watching Ireland v Italy.

The southern hemisphere boys must be laughing themselves silly.

Rol - agreed but its been a bit of a snow drought this winter so you have to take what you can get. Enough to mess up our rugby though!

Malc - Ireland v Italy was dour and then there was England v Wales. If the SH biys were laughing themselves after the Irish they must have been beside themselves after the England game.
