OT ~ Reading vs Saracens

Some time in the distant past I went to a Sarries cup game away at Reading RFC.

The supporters coach picked up at Bramley Road and I remember it was a bitterly cold day, so cold in fact that I stayed in the Reading clubhouse drinking hot toddies for the 2nd half.

Can anyone remind me of the date?

Probably as it was a cup game, and given the date, it will explain why I was freezing the proverbials off.

Thanks.

glad you bumped it! Although I was only three at the time (sorry.) it's good to read about days gone by - especially good to keep us grounded and remember when we weren't the ultra-successful club we are now.

Muna Ebongalame and Tony Copsey....happy days.

Cue for a couple of songs there.



I was 17 miles from Graybridge before I was caught by the school leopard

And I was errr... the wrong side of my 40th birthday (Sm58). OMG, how time flies.

Nice read from grauniad too.

Wasn't that the match that spawned one of them?

For the benefit of the youngsters on here, 'Una Paloma Blanca' (one white dove) was a song taken into the charts by a paedophile decades ago.

If you thought, as I did, that it would be impossible to fit 'Muna Ebugalame' into a song, you would underestimate that the drunken imagination of the Fez Boyz!

All together now:

Muna Ebugalame,
He's just a guy on the wing
He once scored two tries,
Since then nuttin'
