Swing Low

What a day!
by Hardy on 09/12/2003

Hardy wandered up to see the England Rugby Union team bring home the World Cup yesterday. Pictures and thoughts from a great day.

What a day!
Yesterday I headed to Trafalgar Square to see the England Rugby team bring the Webb Ellis Cup home as world champions. I was not alone, there was an estimated 750,000 on the route of the parade which started at Marble Arch and ended at Trafalgar Square.

During the time leading up to the team arriving at around 1:30pm a packed crowd sang and cheered, watching the video from the slow progress of the buses carrying the team and management through the crowds. The whole time there was not a hint of trouble, everyone was good natured and no-one went over the top, even the nutters in the fountains on what was the coldest day of the year so far.

They climbed on bus stops (right), up the lamp posts (left), and in the trees to get a decent view. There were women and children and men in suits and others in rugby shirts drinking beer. There was no bad language at all, not a hint of a fight or a broken bottle.

Can football learn a lesson from Rugby? It can learn hundreds. Actually winning something would be a start.

Nelsons Column is the favourite viewpoint


Kids that should be at school sit on the Lions


I bet they are regretting this now


The buses arrive - a glimpse of gold


Speeches over, ticker tape explodes
