This issue sees Prince Harry meeting injured players and injured troops. He is the Vice Patron of the RFU and Patron of the Union’s Injured Players Foundation. England players were also at Stoke Mandeville during their Investec Internationals schedule and Mr England, aka Peter Cross, he of the St George’s suit and big top hat, tells of a decade as England mascot.

There’s the relaunch of an all singing and dancing interactive England Rugby Junior Supporters Club, for just £5 a year and what a stocking filler! The team named after a chip shop batters the opposition and the Barbarians beat Combined Services 46 – 21 in the Remembrance Day Match.

Yazoo Tag Ambassador, Mark Cueto helps youngsters at North Ribblesdale with their skills and Princess Anne is impressed when she visits Middlesbrough FairPlay scheme. Or perhaps you’d like to read all about Harlequins v London Irish in Twickenham Stadium’s Big Game 3, the must see sporting event over Christmas.
