just been to the rugby – salford city reds
it was great and i don’t even like rugby
catalan dragons were 20 nil up after 10 minutes but slowly but surely salford fought their way back and won 34 – 30
met some lovely people and a group of young people i’ve been doing some work with read some poems in the posh hospitality lounge at half time – they were ace, the stars
but the best thing about tonight was the crowd – talk about passion – i go to old trafford and chant and sing on my own and people around me look at ME like i’m weird.
Top to see the fans jumping out of the seats and waving arms and getting behind the posts to cheer the team on – mams dads kids
and something i’ve never heard before – a large crowd of people chanting the words “SALFORD” –
bit too rough and tumble for me though – i’m a poet you know
