Meanwhile, half a world away...

Its Autumn in New Zealand, the leaves are falling... but who is this familiar face?
It's Simon Hill, Letchworth Girls' coach in 2008/9 season (arguably our most successful season ever - he knew what he was doing once the language barrier was overcome) and former Letchworth 1st XV prop, who turned out for New Brighton 2nd XV in Christchurch last week, starting  on the bench, but coming on in the second half. He may be 18,000 miles away, but Simon is still playing in Black and Amber. Nice hat too, by the way.

Meanwhile on the other side of the Tasman, in sunny Sydney, a more attractive image as Dee Why Pinks (the all-girl Under 6 team) are rapidly becoming media stars. Their local paper are reporting on every game they play - the latest being a narrow 11-10 defeat to Seaforth Gold, who presented all the girls with flowers after the game. The Pinks now have a squad size well into double figures with four or five new players since they first made the headlines a week or two ago - which hopefully means that they won't have to borrow a few boys like they did in an earlier fixture this season.

With such a large squad of girls - who are clearly having such fun - how far might they go in future years?
