Sadly my sister-in-law's ideas on decor didn't fit at all well with my brother's choice for the quilt and, as it doesn't comply with with her choices of cream and taupe, it has stayed in a cupboard for it's entire life and never seen the light of day
In hindsight I should have asked her - but never mind, who knows, when the current fashion for safe neutrals eventually fades maybe she might bring it out of hibernation

Mind you as the shirts are the same type of fabric and construction as the current vogue for men's stretch fitted shirts I can't say they're particularly flattering - here she is on the left with two of her Taunton team-mates who look even less comfortable in their shirts
I'll gloss over the fact that the England Colleges squad were stuffed by the RFUW National Talent Development Group squad 52 points to Nil
Although I will just drop in the nugget of information that the RFUW wanted to draft her in to play for the opposition but her coaching mentor suggested that, as her parents (you know The Bank of Anne and Nigel) had paid £300 for her playing fees for England Colleges, she should be given the chance to wear that white shirt with pride
Sarah, being Sarah, played the entire 80 minutes at 110% effort - the first quarter in her natural position of flanker and the latter 60 minutes at INSIDE CENTRE! (a position she has never played in her life but actually looked pretty handy at) to cover for injury and the coaching staff's poor bench selection.
Fortunately the match was recorded for the RFUW so her efforts will be seen and probably analysed at length and hopefully stand her in good stead for the future plus her mentor will be able to point out just how much of the match she played out of position. I may sound like a biased mother here but she certainly looked a class above virtually all of her team mates.
However she is now nursing a very sore knee so it's lots of R & R to ready herself for our club Tour weekend on 25th/26th April when, among other things, we'll take in a premiership match at Sixways between Worcester Warriors and London Irish (will be thinking of you Mrs M) and then of course the next two England Colleges matches against the seriously stiff opposition of Welsh Colleges away on 1st May and at home a week later on 8th of May

Our girls only lost one of their games, against the Welsh side, and drew another against a strong East region side from SEEVIC college in Essex
