My first love is cricket (we can discuss today’s ineptitude on another thread!) but have to say following todays (this year’s) events my mind has gone back to Francis Thompson’s 1878 poem ‘At Lord’s’. I’ll forgoe you the torture of my linking of Francis Thompson’s poem of 143 ago with my thoughts on this Boxing Day eve …. But I’ll leave you with this one thought …. O my Prior and my Rutherford long ago!
