    Smashing them back

    The Labour leadership challenger was today in trouble for using the phrase "smashing them back on their heels". It was suggested this was a indication of violence, domestic or otherwise. One of the defenses offered was that he was Welsh and that this was a well know rugby term. I can't say I...

    22/25 Yard line

    Probably one for OB. When I was a lad it was called the 25 yd line, then with the metric system it became the 22 metre line. 25 yards is 22.86 metres - why isn't it the 23 metre line. Pitches must be slight smaller than previously

    Darlington Grammers School OBs

    Do any northern boys have any contacts at Mowden Park. I notice they have just bought the Darlington Arena (Capacity 25 000) which should just about be big enough for Nat league 2 North crowds.
