The troops assembled at lunchtime, in the bar of the Holiday Inn, Brentford. A walk of around three-quarters of an hour took us to the White Cross, Richmond, where a TV crew was waiting to film material, and we were joined by the staff of the Rugby Players’ Association. A few pints, and a twenty-minute walk later, everybody was ensconsced at journey’s end, the Barmy Arms, where further TV footage was recorded.
