Men with funny shaped balls

Lunchtime capers in Trafalgar Square. The Royal Bank of Scotland, who like to call themselves RBS for some reason (are they ashamed of being a bank?), are sponsors of the Six Nations rugby championship. The Six Nations (Five Nations, until Italy were admitted in 2000) is the oldest international rugby tournament. It is the de facto European and northern hemisphere championship.

The roadshow brought former Welsh captain Ieuan Evans to the centre London helping hopefuls like me kick for prizes.

I am not Jonny Wilkinson. Neither am I Garo Yepremian. But, even after my first girlie attempt I nearly put the ball through the middle target. On the third attempt the ball popped through the right target. A bad sponsors t-shirt will follow in the post.

And, no this woman hasn't kicked her foot through the posts.

Six Nations action kicks off next weekend with England hosting champions Wales, Ireland versus Italy and, on Sunday the favourites France travelling to Edinburgh to take on the perpetual wooden spoonists, Scotland.
