    Default July rugby in England

    I'm possibly going to be in England (Corwall & Yorkshire) in July. Anyone know the dates for the 7s stop? Anything else happening?

    Thanx in advance.

    July is dead month. Most clubs will be STARTING preseason training towards the end of July.

    A few MAY be running some light heatted tocuh sessions - bit thats a socail rather than training

    While Leeds will not be as warm as Sydney - it is equivalent to asking how much ruby is being played there this week.
    It is cricket or lawn tennis.

    Wimbledon runs from 2nd to 15th
    England v India ODI at Headingley on the 17h July.

    Thanx all, I was afraid of that. The grandkids are really into surfing hence the visit to Cornwall. Anybody know anything about that?

    BTW - British roads are often very crowded.
    British drivers consider the 101 and the Washington beltway to be free flowing roads with little traffic.
    100 miles can be a long way. I took over two hours to do 60 miles into London yesterday

    In rural areas - such as Cornwall and Yorkshire - most roads as single carriageway (one lane each way).
    Allow extra time for any journey.

    I have got off a plane and into a car in the US, but that is not an overnight flight.
    Personally I would not want to drive the day I arrived in the UK from the US - I would use public transport to get to a hotel close to Heathrow your first night and hire a car on the next day - but your mileage may vary.

    Google maps and the like will give you likely-ish journey times
