Because Friday night’s Music Night: swing low …
Excuse me for muscling in, but this is an important weekend. It’s an important weekend because tomorrow England’s fine rugby chaps welcome Ireland’s fine rugby chaps to Twickenham,
whereupon they’ll ruin St Patrick’s Day for’em by handing out a thrashing and may the best team win. Who’ll win? Dunno, it’s a very close match up. I think England will edge the set pieces while Ireland’s back row will have the breakdowns. Then it’s a case of who makes best use of the ball. So let’s kick off with a lovely old English folk tune. There are many versions and a few different names for it. This one’s ‘The Bold Grenadier’ –
Or you might like Luke Kelly’s diddled up version, ‘The Nightingale’ –
England by five. Or maybe Ireland by five. No idea really, just can’t call it.
