Another competition win for the Legends

Or at least a photograph of them...
And, moreover, its the already multi-honoured 2006-7 team!

Basically the above image, taken by Mike Alcock, has been judged the winner of a photo competition called "Love the Mud", sponsored by Seakskinz - a manufacturer of waterproof sports socks. For those that remember it, the spring of 2007 was a classic period for mud-soaked rugby fields, never better than the memorable day at Lichfield RFC when National 10s was decided by means of a 100m freestyle relay.

Okay, I exaggerate... but not by much. Drowning did become a real possibility when anyone dived for a try, or ended at the bottom of a ruck. Even so, it did represent a high water mark for the team who never threw in the towel as they broke their duck in final lengths of a national competition (well, finished 5th anyway), and its also perhaps no co-incidence that the team mascot for the next couple of seasons was, in fact, a duck!

Anyway - well done to Mike. Not to mention Rosie, Nim, Emily, Laura, Charlie and (I think) Nichola. You were stars!

    I remember it well. It was the most rain that i can ever remember at a tournament. Hard to believe that it was back in 2007
