Ex-legend debuts for Sarries

Or should I say "Sarrie".

While many of our current U18s were in action in Crawley and Birmingham, Laura and Ella - our U15 girls - were assisting a slightly more petite version of a famous sporting icon at the North Herts Mini Rugby Festival back at Letchworth.

Sarrie did all the usual dances, handwaving, hugging of small children, and autograph signing - and was surrounded at times by adoring (or annoying?) crowds of young rugby players determined to touch (or tackle) the large dromedary.

Of course Sarrie is not real (sorry if that has shocked many of his followers) and requires some poor sap to wear the large (and very warm - especially on this very sunny September morning) costume. The sap in this case was our own Katie, who did several heroic tours of the ground before retreating to cool down, and in end also gave out the trophies. She resisted all attempts by over-enthusiastic youths to bring her to the ground, and the smile never wavered (though it is sewn on). All in all it was an excellent performance.

From captain to camel - what a difference a year makes!
