Yesterday, I went to watch Jack, my son, play against Cobham U21s for a place in the final of the Surrey U21 Cup final.
It was a hot day and the dust from the hard pitch could be seen after each scrum. Cobham had the better threequarter line but struggled a bit up front.
Though Jack prefers to play back row because of his height he is playing more in the second row and won good lineout ball all through the game.
The score with a minute to go was 23-20 to Richmond who then gave away a dreaded penalty but fortunately it was missed and so Richmond went through to the final.
