Adelaide 7's rugby

Adelaide, Australia

We crawled out of bed a bit worse for wear and caught the train into the city to watch the Adelaide Rugby 7's - loads of BIG beefy men chasing each other really fast with a ball. England's first match left us really disappointed - they didn't score a single point against Fiji. They then came back to beat New Zealand and (best of all) Australia - although that game went to extra time and sudden death. The locals were not happy when we won, but Karen made sure she was vocal about the win (not to mention visual with her George cross flag and mad hat!) No one else appeared quite as enthusiastic (must have been the hangovers!). The other girls spent most of their time on the bouncy castle and on the army tank computer games, they also got their faces painted.

The matches went from 11am until 7pm and South Africa beat Kenya in the final. After it all ended we went for dinner and then made our way home on the train very tired.An early night was had by all!!
