The Scrum: England V Argentian 14th Nov 2009. England playing for the first time ever in a purple strip.
It was a blustery day with high kicking rugby. England and Argentina played their hearts out, but England came out the winners. Johnny Wilkinson played a blinder of a game, but he missed three penalty shots. Argintina played very well and it seemed at times they were about to take the lead by scoring a try. However, England held on and eventually won the scrappy match.
England were playing for the first time ever in a purple strip.
As usual, I enjoyed really the occasion, cheering for England doesn’t come naturally to a Scotsman, but I was the guest of a good English friend:-) We had good company on the way to the game, a meal in the Turk’s Head Pub and some great conversation about the match on the way back.
