Another trophy!

Little did you know it, but we picked up another trophy on Sunday.

I gather that everyone was so cold and wet that you all left before the presentations, but if you had stayed you would have found that we had again won the "Fairplay Trophy" at the National 10s which (when we get it) will look good alongside the one we picked up at East Midlands.

Some people say that such trophies are pats on the back and "consolation prizes", and it has to be said that at the Regionals it was remarkable how all the "Fairplay" trophies went to teams finishing third or fourth (moral: you only win by being evil b****ds?), but I hope that isn't the case - and the regularity with which we win these does (I think) mean there must be something in it.

So maybe we should set ourselves an aim - to do the "impossible" win a tournament AND its fairplay trophy at the same time!

Or are we just too nice?

No - seriously - well done everyone. I think it really does say a lot about how we play the game at this club. And well done to Joe for spotting it!

PS. We will be presented with the trophy at the National Sevens on the 26th.
