I saw a full game from Farrell against Quins at the w/e for the first
time.  He looked very good.  I'm always nervous about bringing young
players in to early given England's ability to***up even experienced
people though.

Easy. I moved one out (from 10 to 12) and kept yelling "you take him"
whenever any of the oppo ran at me. Fortunately our 13 was a league convert
so he was happy to run into everything all day. As a last resort I'd fall
down in front of the oppo and hope they tripped over me.

On the way home I dropped into St Mary's Hospital in Paddington. Five hours
later I had an xray and found it was a simple fracture of the clavicle.
Really didn't hurt that much at the time. Young and dumb I guess.

Still got the xray somewhere :-)

Almost.....Uni of London. My brother and I used to get hauled in as ring-
ins. He was a NZ Maori triallist back in the days when it meant something
and I used to tag along cos I'd played outside him for so many years I knew
all of his tricks (him at 9 and me at 10). We were at least ten years older
than the rest of the players but it was always good craic playing with them.
No brains but lots of "endeavour".

Depends on the bone, JD says pointing out the obvious. A mate broke a
metatarsal by dropping the pannier on his foot and rode for another
week in Botswana, including the Makgadikgadi.

I broke the cuneiform by the big toe and the navicular. Basically the
bits that touch the gear lever which is what broke them when I fell.
Still gives me grief on long rides now as when it healed I got some
extra boney outgrowths which rub when the big toe moves.
