    I think we only managed to get worked up when we played the odd private school such as Arnold or Heversham.
    Bit of pain having to wear your school uniform on a Saturday though!
    My son's (now 22) three favourite rugby moments were facing Hakas in NZ and in Australia with a touring NZ team and playing a touring English school team (Grammar School at Leeds)

    I reffed the Leeds team several years ago when they played in Melbourne. Lovely bunch of lads.

    Total hijack, but it always concerned me that these touring teams were never briefed on the Mayday protocol
    I, for one, like Roman numerals

    I think that was the same tour. I reffed the first XV game. My boy played the second XV.
