Start Of The Six Nations


Today I watched Six Nations Rugby.

The first game, between Scotland and Ireland was played at Murrayfield, and broadcast by BBC. Pundits, likeย Jeremy Guscott and John Inverdale and spectators, such as James Nesbitt, are important participants.

After this, ITV broadcast the match between England and France held at Twickenham. The pundits in this batch of photographs are Johnny Wilkinson, Brian O’Driscoll, and Sir Clive Woodward.

This evening we dined on succulent roast lamb with mint sauce; creamy mashed potatoes; and crisp carrots and broccoli, with which I finished the bottle of Doom Bar that had accompanied my afternoon’s viewing.


  1. Great action shots, Derrick. I’m curious, does Jackie enjoy watching Rugby or are you holed up in a room by yourself? My Derek is obsessed with professional English football. He watches alone, while I write. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Great shots, Derrick! We don’t have sports on the telly too often here, but once in awhile make room for American football, tennis, or most often, boxing.

  3. You certainly got some great pictures there Derrick, obviously a die hard supporter.
    Your supper made my mouth water, roast lamb and mint sauce is absolutely great, I recall my first wife always used to have Yorkshire pudding and gravy with them.

    1. Thanks, Ian. Actually, I played both rugby and cricket until I was 45 and moved the Midlands and considered it too late to join new clubs. Yorkshire pudding perfects the dish ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. It looks like you had a good time watching the game.
    My husband will be watching the Super Bowl tonight. I’ll watch something else upstairs. ๐Ÿ™‚
