You obviously have never been to Headingley! It is the bane of going there that the bag searches take so long. A couple of years ago they insisted on tying a tag onto each bag to prove that it was searched. One steward was deployed to do this and struggled with the tying mechanism. It was a complete farce and fortunately only lasted one day. I still have my tag as proof. They also tried to stop people leaving bags unattended on seats but again that proved unenforceable.

You get about. You're not one of the umpires are you?

Not sure my knees could hack standing up for that length of time.

I'm in Sussex by the Sea for a few days so decided to take in some cricket.

Hove is looking nice these days.

No deckchairs though which is a shame.

You can leave the Hove ground at lunchtime and return another plus.

It is grim at Hove though - who'd want to go back? One of my least favourite grounds - not helped by them selling me mouldy food.

Admittedly it used to be shabby but the new stand is really nice.

Wish we could have something like that at the Fortress.

I will not be attending the RLC cup game on Sunday even as a non member. I will be somewhere else, a place that asked for the double vaccination document from the NHS to be e mailed to them. This was doe and is ok. Have a system of wrist bands to show how much contact you would wish. Masks are voluntary and contactless is preferred but cash will be accepted and please have the right money.
