The benefits of being No. 1

Without wishing to push this too much, I have noticed an interesting change in the responses I get when I take time out to write to this or that rugby-related organisation about something or other that may have annoyed or puzzeled.

Suddenly I am getting replies. And not just pro-forma automated acknowledgements either - I mean proper replies, and from quite senior people, by the looks of it. Okay, there are exceptions but generally its all rather good. As a result some mildly interesting stuff has come to hand which, with it being half term now, I should be able to find some time to write up (local teachers are falling ill in proper numbers of late, so I've had less spare time on my hands).

Incidentally on a related subject, while teaching PE yesterday I came across an AS/A2 PE textbook. If anyone is doing PE post-16 (or even, for all I know, GCSE) and is working on anything about women's/girls' sport, or sexual discrimination in sport, or similar, I do have a fair bit of stuff that would seem to support a sizable chunk of the curriculum on that subject. Let me know if I can help.
