Congrats to the team - it was their second Middlesex 7s title in 4 seasons! Hurrah! And Army charities will beneift from the win too- there was a prize fund of approx £50,000! Hurrah Hurrah!
Apparently the skipper, Maj Howard Graham, re-evaluated tactics following a poor performance at the Compass 7s. The decision to spread the ball wide and stay away from contact was believed to be an important factor in Saturday's win. (OK - that bit came from someone who knows what they are talking about).
Funnily enough the media didn't quite get it right...............NO members of the team were flown in from Iraq!! Although a player did manage to escape from FI for the games.... any chance I could take up Rugby in time for my next dodgy posting??
