The pink bubble stationDespite miserable weather yesterday a very decent turn out for St Elizabeth Hospice's Bubble Rush in Ipswich.  For the first hour or so the weather flirted with raining but then got going along with a chilling wind but rushers kept rushing, the arch on the blue bubble station reenacted the flamme rouge collapse in the 2016 Tour de France and the stewards at the finish kept dancing and giving cheerful encouragement.

Ipwich Cardinals 10-21 London Blitz BWe weren't optimistic about yesterday's Ipswich Cardinals v London Blitz B because the Cards had lost 55-00 to the Blitz earlier this year.  In the event on a roastingly hot day (thankfully with a breeze) the Cards led 10-00 for most of the game.  Finally the Blitz offence broke out (they'd been threatening to do it all game) to score two ... more here

The Ipswich Cardinals may have lost their away game at London Blitz B on Sunday but their 2-1 season so far is still an encouraging improvement on the last couple of years.  The Cards' first home game of the season 2:30pm kick off this Sunday.
