At Rugby Game
On Friday evening, Leeds Met Pro-Vice-Chancellor Sally Brown had invited me to attend a Rugby game with the Leeds Rhinos. She had reserved a table at the Headingley Stadium for a nice dinner, for a few of Leeds Met staff and invited guests. This evening the guests were from Leeds Met cultural partnerships.
A very nice dinner, interesting conversations. And then the first ever rugby game that I attended: the unbeatable Leeds Rhinos against the Harlequins. Naturally, Leeds Rhinos won 48:0. Is an interesting game. Appears to be quite complex, with some degree of violence. But the audience is very family-oriented: there are parents with their kids, and the fans behave very orderly - no beating.
