  1. this is great.

    ironic that over here that at the same point of time we were having the first Rebel tour to SA.

    many a day spent cavorting in the field as wives and girlfriends – of others – did the laborious scoring job, to them all, Gwen Barter in the under 10s and Bev Johnson in the early 80s, Mrs Hayes at school, the women who fed us poor uni kids when we played away in the 80s, all the ones I have forgotten, thanks to you all.

    scorers of the world, unite!
