Follow Maggie Alphonsi's World Cup - and watch live!

Just discovered that the England team have set up their own blog and information pages in a Sevens website called Actually I suspect that this is Maggie Alphonsi's work, rather than anything official by RFUW - Maggie being an enthusiastic user of Facebook, if I remember from the East Region dinner a year or so ago.

Some of you will have met Maggie, who lives in Hertfordshire and plays at Saracens. She often attends Herts county or East events, and she is writing a blog throughout the tournament. Its something that members of the US team have done for some time, and its good to see an England player following suit.

Danielle Waterman is also writing an "official" diary for the tournament, which is appearing on the RFUW website. Unfortunately the "unique" (ie. antiquated) nature of the RFU's website means that its impossible to come up with a link to the diary as it unfolds - the best I can come up with is this link to what I think is the latest installment ("Day 4"). Pity as Danielle is a good writer.

Finally it looks like you CAN watch the tournament - live and free. Well, at the moment! A South African TV channel call SuperSport is covering the event - and it can be seen online - see below. The men's tournament starts today, and play should go on until early evening (our time). Check it out!
