North of a Miracle

Wales wing George North has been left out of the team to face Scotland after his controversial concussion against England.
Liam Williams replaces the Northampton flyer in the starting XV - the only change from the side that lost 21-16 against England.
North has been given an 'extended period of rest' after seemingly being knocked unconscious during the England clash, with the WRU later admitting he would have been removed from the field if medics had seen the second of two incidents.
That seems prudent to me. The two knocks he got in the England game were brutal.

Closer to home, Year 10 including the Year 9 Bomber beat Wallington Grammar in a tight 8-5 game yesterday and he is playing them again on Thursday for Year 9.

I hope he doesn't pick up any knocks tomorrow as he is off to Europe skiing with the school on Friday evening. Old Ruts training is cancelled tonight, which does at least give him a day off between the two Wallington games.

Speaking of the Old Ruts, against the form book Chobham beat Chipstead on Sunday which has left the Ruts second in the league with a game in hand over third placed Chipstead. This also adds some spice to the Ruts' next league game which is a home fixture against a resurgent Chobham on March 1.
