Congratulations to the GB Olympic sevens side on their silver medal win last night. They were given exhibition match style pummelling in the final, but can more than hold their heads high; being effectively a scratch side against a Fijian outfit who have specialised in this format around the world.
In other rugby news, I got an email last night saying Ben has been selected for this year’s Hard Rock Café London Rugby League Origin Series. Here's the announcement on the London Rugby League Foundation web site, which also explains what the Origin Series is and its history.
While I was on the site, I checked and saw that the Invicta Panthers beat the Elmbridge Eagles in the U15 finals last month, so the Ruts have the - admittedly small - consolation of going out in the semis to the ultimate winners.
