Congratulations to former school mates Nick Easter, and Andrew Sheridan who are playing for England in the current Rugby World Cup 2011 in New Zealand. I remember seeing these guys play for the Dulwich College first XI ... the team was undefeated all season and had a legendary status ... everyone knew that some of them would easily go on to play for the national side. Sheridan, nick named 'Man Mountain', was in the same Geography class as I, and was already 6 foot after his GCSEs! When the opposition came around (especially the likes of strong teams such as Harrow, Eton, Tonbridge, Clifton College and others), no one dared to come anywhere near both of them. As the saying goes that 'in rugby what's on the ground, is the ground!', and both of them made sure that this statement stood strong against any opposition!
While Sheridan injured his shoulder and is no longer playing, Easter, however, continues to lead his team towards the title. England is the current pool-leader and competes next against reigning European Nations Cup champions Georgia on Sunday, September 18.
I am sure plenty of cheers would be coming all the way from the Great Hall at Dulwich College, London.

If you are an investor or a trend watcher then you may find this website useful as investing has a lot to do with personal observations and finding the ideal trend or next big thing. The average human on the street frequently knows far more about the state of the economy than politicians, university professors, subject matter experts, and financial analysts who seldom travel, or if they do so, only from one hotel to another hotel! The pulse and vibrancy of an economy is nowhere more visible than on a country's streets.
