Rugby Club Bars #10
After a feisty game in lovely sunshine, London Ref was looking forward to beer and a chat. However, as a team without a home of their own, the hosts drank at the soccer centre next door to the university ground they use. As if being full of soccer players wasn't bad enough, there was no bitter, not even keg! Ref had to settle for plastic lager. Fortunately both teams were happy to share their (positive) thoughts on the game and keep my glass topped up.
