Achieving the impossible at Twickenham

England Rugby - RFUSnow, wind, rain, frost, more snow, wind chill, more rain... how do the weather forecasters keep presenting the wether when it is so awful!

Today, the temperature has been 1 degree but feels like minus 1 and going to feel like minus 6 tomorrow at midday, just what you need if you are heading over to Twickenham Stadium to watch the RBS Six Nations Rugby.

It is so hard for RFU Twickenham Grounds Manager Keith Kent and his dedicated Team to get the pitch ready to host England playing Scotland today.   Not forgetting that at Esher RFC, The England Ladies Team are also taking on Scotland.  After a few weeks of snow and a lot of rain, we can hope that the turf grasses and the pitch as a whole can as the RFU state on their web site live up to their claim that 'Twickenham has one of the best playing surfaces in World Rugby.'

A one degree increase in temperature will double the metabolic rate of growth of garden plants so a really cold winter will assist in the promotion of growth of the grass plants and other garden plants as soon as the temperature warms up a bit. Here's hoping that it will be soon :-)

View the weather on Metcheck and plan your weekend or failing that stick another log on the fire, pour yourself a beer and watch England take on Scotland and let's hope both England Rugby Teams win!
