Re: Anyone on here fly in a Concorde?

I used to love seeing it in Windsor after taking off every evening, something to admire while playing grass court tennis in Home Park (next to the rugby pitches).

Thorley went in high, clashed heads and his head than snapped back. He went off for an HIA and stiches, while the ref debated it with the TMO. Sharples was on the pitch as a sub before the red card emerged.
