England win Six Nations Rugby

England win Grand Slam
A belated post this one; the English women's team won out the Grand Slam in the RBS Six Nations at the weekend. If you're a fan of the male game, you might be a bit confused by the post title as they were pipped at the post by Ireland (beam!) on Saturday.
Unfortunately the English women's team smashed the girls in green 31-0 on their way to victory. Maybe next year! 
As a funny side-note, the English boys were so confident of victory their sponsor Nike prepared a film and they also ran up hundreds of celebratory T-shirts. Never count your chickens before they come home in sport, especially at this elite level is all I can say to that.
