I thought it was going to be sunny ....

Even the higher authority (the Met Office, apparently) called upon to provide good weather at Reading on Sunday was unable to keep the rain away for the whole day, though it did seem to me that Wimbourne had brought the Dorset sun with them ... and took it back with them, as well!

The first game was a close affair between Reading and Wimbourne which saw the visitors do enough to gain the victory. Then it was Letchworth's turn. It turned out to be a day of mixed fortunes for the Letchworth girls who fought back in their first game (against Wimbourne) to earn a draw but then couldn't maintain that level in the second match which was comfortably won by the hosts.

I thought we might start off a few pics from the match with this one which, after looking at a photo of a grey-haired old guy on, one might title "It's all in the genes!" -

And this could be titled "Ruby gets a warm Wimbourne welcome!" -

Then we have Sasha's try -

and Natalie's marathon try from just about on her own tryline ...
... just evading the Wimbourne defence ...

And finally, following John's suggestion, does anyone have a caption for this one?
It was a fine day's rugby marred only by the injury to Poppy - everyone at Letchworth sends their best wishes for a full and speedy recovery.

Many thanks to everyone at Reading and Wimbourne rugby clubs and good luck in the Divisional 10s this weekend!
