Its been a while since I've been to Twickenham so when some free tickets presented themselves there was no choice. I felt it my duty bound to attend.
The occasion was the opening game of this years 6 nations and England's opponents were Italy. It was a bitterly cold day but 4 compulsory pre match pints of Guinness gave me the required warm glow that only alcohol can provide.
This was the first time I'd attended with the new south stand alterations, and I have to say now for the first time to me Twickers looks complete. It will now seats 82,000 supporters but believe you me tickets for the big games are as rare to get hold of as rocking horse shit! My free one had a face value of £71 would you believe.
The final score was a pleasing England 36 Italy 11
