Saturday 11th June will see not much happening at Eccles RFC, no food, no drink and definitely no sport on the TV, so you all might as well stay at home as usual.
For those who cannot understand the simple concept of sarcasm the day begins with England taking on Australia in the first Test of their summer tour. Kick Off is 11:00am, although the clubhouse will be open from 10:00am. This will be shown live to one man & Ruby the dog, there I go again.
After that we have a full cornucopia of sport on the TV starting with the opening game of the U’20 World Rugby Championship as New Zealand take on Ireland KO 1:30pm. Then we have the choice of the big boys game of South Africa v Ireland KO 4:00pm or another little boys game with Wales v Georgia, KO 3:30pm. Then to finish off we have another little boys game with England v Scotland KO 6:00pm.
In between all this manic activity the holder of the remote will be flicking between channels to keep up to date with the Cricket Test Match.
The day finishes with England taking on Russia in their opening game of the Footy Euro’s. KO 8:00pm.
At the end of the day I expect to be going home to bed very tired and emotional. Just another day then for some. See you all there then.
