twixt cup and lip

Australia have put England out of the World Cup, which means Wales are definitely through to the quarter finals. I am delighted but find myself curiously flat about the English disappointment and in no mood to crow.

Ben turned out for the Club U16s (the year above his age group) today. They beat Rosslyn Park away very convincingly (43-12 as I recall) on their 3G pitch and under (though they were off, of course) floodlights that were paid for by Oliver Reed.

The school has drawn Dulwich College in the next round of the NatWest Cup. A school with such resources that they are the official team base of the Australian World Cup squad. The odds will be stacked against them, but I am sure they will do us proud.
