It was a bit blustery and wet overnight and earlier today
But would we cancel? No way! Way! No way!
Wayne and Garth would've been down the park in their own little world
But not Northampton boss Keith Curle,he would have h....not been well
The weather in the end was good although a bit parky in the funnel
Rolf`s ok though,he`s warmed up now
Still no 2020 appearance from Sally Gunnell.
