The weekend to come.................

I'm so sorry everyone searching for quilty content - this posting will be unashamedly non-quilting!

On Saturday and Sunday the great and the good of girls' rugby will congregate in a small Staffordshire town of Lichfield for the National Championships

Sarah, as a member of the U18s squad for the South West South region will play her matches on Sunday, the U15s on the day before.

The weekend is a culmination of the year leading up to it.........................
The disgusting freezing horizontal hail


The glorious sunshine

The faithful supporters

And on this Sunday......


Balls will be presented

Tackles made


Conversions will be kicked


Scrummages will be pushed with all their might


There may be boredom for some of the camp followers


There may even be a little eye candy for the more discerning ladies on the sidelines - although sadly this particular yellow shorted coach will be with the U15s on the other day - sob!

And ultimately, win or lose, that glorious cry of "Where's the beach? will ring around the club


and the girls will have had a ball!

Have a great time. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed that The Thumb survives the weekend.

Isn't Lichfield Cathedral the one with the crooked spire?
