Come to­gether

The Dominion Post - - Sport | Family Notices -

They’ve been on field en­e­mies since 1881, but Six Na­tions gi­ants Eng­land and Wales have de­cided to work to­gether on the train­ing field. The two sides have put aside their dif­fer­ences and or­gan­ised a scrum­mag­ing and li­ne­out bat­tle on the train­ing field as they pre­pare for their Novem­ber in­ter­na­tion­als. The idea is un­der­stood to have been cooked up by Gat­land and Eng­land for­wards coach Steve Borth­wick, who was also part of the Lions coach­ing team in New Zealand dur­ing the sum­mer. The Welsh play­ers will travel to Clifton for the be­hind-closed-doors ses­sion on the morn­ing of Novem­ber 6 be­fore re­turn­ing to their Vale train­ing base to con­tinue prepa­ra­tions in the af­ter­noon.
