England grand slams and Market Harborough

Yesterday England won their first grand slam for 13 years.

Their team contained a product of my old school in Market Harborough, now called the Robert Smyth Academy, in the shape of Dan Cole.

Back in 2003 it did too - the captain, Martin Johnson.

That is quite an achievement for a small-town comprehensive.

In my day the best sportsman in the school, a couple of years below us, was a footballer. That was Andy Peake, who went on to play for Leicester City in the old first division.
