Gloucester/The City

Gloucester (glos-ter) began life as a settlement for retired Roman soldiers but really came into its own in medieval times, when the pious public brought wealth and prosperity to what was then a pilgrimage city. The faithful flocked to see the grave of Edward 11 and soon financed the building of what remains one of England’s most beautiful cathedrals.

On more recent years, Gloucester bore the brunt of hard times and the city fell into serious decline. The centre remains a rather dowdy, workaday place, but scratch the surface and you’ll find a glimmer of medieval character.

Useless fact: John Stafford Smith, who composed America’s national anthem, The Star Spangled Banner, was born in Gloucester in 1750.

Does Test Rugby need stricter rules? (Tue, 14 Nov 2017)
Evidently Rhys Webb wants to have his Welsh cake and eat it. The Ospreys and Lions scrum-half signed for Toulon earlier this month, days before the Welsh Rugby Union announced a change to its policy governing players outside the country, entrapping the 28-year old.

Rugby needs to learn the right lessons from Football (Wed, 17 May 2017)

He was at it again in a recent column. He was writing about players’ attempts to get others booked, and predictably … Continue reading Rugby needs to learn the right lessons from Football

Premiership Rugby ambition must be challenged by RFU. (Mon, 08 May 2017)
The Champions Cup final this weekend will lack a team from the Pro 12 for the fifth consecutive season following the Munster and Leinster semi-final defeats. The tournament has become an Anglo-French production, although in those five years only four clubs have made it to the final: Toulon, Saracens, Clermont Auvergne and, last year, Racing … Continue reading Premiership Rugby ambition must be challenged by RFU.
