Doing all three days this year, a friend is playing for Joining Jack. Hoping they get to meet Christina Noble at some point.

My son's PE teacher is playing, too. We are not going, though.

Dean, what will you be doing there?

No thanks, even with the free tickets I've been offered. (They aren't transferrable before anyone asks.)

I'll be spending most of the weekend working

What name are the Joining Jack boys entering under? There's no team under that name........ the pride of English Rugby L**gue, circa 1990s - looking forward to seeing them.

Are you aware of the identity of Joining Jack's water carrier??

Same as every year - that's my other 'job' when not doing my regular job - I work for the IRB as an anti-doping official (i.e. a drug tester).

Oh, how absolutely fascinating! Do you have to watch them wee so that they don't cheat at the test?

You've lost me on the team name question.

Yes, I've heard of their waterboy - he's a big supporter of Joining Jack. I was supposed to meet them in Barasti last night but had a meeting at 9am today...and that would not have happened if I went.
