The London 7's

We have now shuffled along the river to Shepperton where we are meeting friends & family. We are also off to Twickenham for the final round of the Rugby 7's International competition.

Our first visit to Twickenham together was to the Middlesex 7's over 30 year's ago,then we sat on wooden benches in the open, the stadium has transformed over the years to a first class venue.

This tube on rails allows 4 people to keep up with the action.

The weekend had a Festival atmosphere, there were lots of people in fancy dress

The Rose & Poppy gates were added to the stadium this year.

England had a good day on Saturday winning all three games in their pool which included Fiji, Wales & Australia. Today they were thrashed by New Zealand and Scotland 

Best match of the weekend was the last match of the tournament, the cup final between Scotland & South Africa was fantastic with Scotland getting a try in the last seconds of the game to win 27-26.

 Tomorrow we move on to the River Wey.
