Now here's a fund-raising idea...

Okay - want to raise a bit of money? Well why not follow the example of these American women's rugby teams and get into the Guinness Book of Records!

Williams College and Keene State College in New Hampshire recently played a game which Williams won by 818 points to 711.

No - that is not a mis-print. Over 1,500 points were scored in the game... but that is not the record. The record is because they played for over 24 hours without stopping. Also, although they made full use of the substitutes bench, with players rolling on and off in shifts, both squads were limited to only the official 22 players.

The game began in pouring rain at 8am on Saturday morning, and finally ended the following morning after 24 hours, 5 minutes and 15 seconds of play - with the teams' charities $10,000 better off.

As well as raising money, they also attracted a huge amount of publicity - you can read a some of press reports here and watch a brief TV news report here.
