England 21 – Ireland 13

The England in my Heart group were at Twickenham to watch England beat Ireland in a World cup warm up game. Both before and after the event they gave out leaflets highlighting how the English Rugby Authorities continue to use the “British” national anthem of England, Scotland, Wales and N. Ireland for an English sporting event whilst Scotland, Wales and N. Ireland would use their own anthems and not the British one.

  1. It’s amazing how this nationalistic awareness has crept in so forcefully (see Scotland) – when I’m asked to sign a document as ‘British’ I always write ‘ENGLISH’ at the side.
