I went down to Bath for the weekend for several reasons:
** to see Jack, my son, who is at Bath Uni
** to see my good friends - David and Sue Gay
** to have supper with Ken Loach
** to watch Bath v Harlequins
** to enjoy a vista of the Fireworks on the Rec
Jack was in fine form though he had no rugby this week. he has gone from the 3rd XV to the 2nd XV in four weeks and is hoping to play for the 1st's before Christmas. I used to coach the University side from 1978-81 and on re-visiting it yesterday was thrilled to see the changes. It is fast becoming a world class university.
David and Sue were also in fine form though Sue's Dad isn't very well.
Ken Loach was such fun and we hope to met up again soon.
Bath were pretty poor against an in-form Quins side losing 13-26
