Six Nations at Twickenham Stadium
Twickenham, home of England rugby, is a magnificent spectacle with 82,000 spectators inside. It is an imposing stadium which has seen so many triumphs and tragedies.
There is an aura about it which opponents can find intimidating especially when the crowd break into song, ‘Swing Low Sweet Chariot’ is somewhat one dimensional but it invariably inspires those on the park.
Fans make a day of it. The car parks are full with vast picnics, the bars are humming, the hospitality on offer is amazing, there is much good humour as kickoff nears. The goal is a Six Nations Grand Slam – a Triple Crown victory over Wales, Scotland and Ireland at the least.
Modern day heroes who have graced the white shirt include 2003 World Cup captain Martin Johnson, Dean Richards, Peter Winterbotham, Jeremy Guscott, Will Carling, Mike Catt, Jonny Wilkinson, Jason Leonard, Brian Moore and Lawrence Dallaglio.
Who can forget the graceful Guscott gliding through a gap, Wilkinson kicking goals for fun, or the abrasive Moore winding up opponents?
There have been many memorable tries at Twickenham during its long history. The winter of 1962-63 is still remembered for its plunging temperatures and deep snow. But it was lit up by Richard Sharp, blond hair billowing in the wind, against Scotland. Sharp sold dummy after dummy as he crossed the line virtually untouched. It was a thing of beauty.
Or come much more up to date, 2010 to be precise, and Chris Ashton taking the ball just yards off his own line against Australia, sprinting ahead, swerving inside a defender and out-running desperate chasers. What a score. Ashton made a meal of it with his trademark swallow dive.
Yes, Twickenham has seen great glory, the crowds have toasted daring deeds, it is indeed a field of dreams.
Much to live up to for those pulling on the jersey today and into the future.
