We've always enjoyed at Maverick Festival Shows the broad repertoire and sometimes standyup drummer of Norwich band Vagaband who musicalise (yes, we just made that word up) the 2021 Census tv ad. The band briefly appears around 49secs in. ♫

Early start in Colney Lane Norwich yesterday for visitors Swansea Titans. A perishing side wind so unsurprisingly no place kicking from either team, lots of daft penalties and both teams recovered onside kicks. Swansea's quarterback #7 was ... more here

In the second quarter with the score 12-06 to UEA very regrettably #27 Jonas Eschenfelder for the visitors Imperial Immortals received a sufficient injury he couldn't be moved. After what must have been around an hour and no ambulance the game was ... more here

Sunday we arrived in Norwich too late for the shaking of hands at UEA Pirates v CCU Chargers but not too late for a Charger to be ejected for illegal use of the helmet. Erin Jones 51 (one the Chargers' two women players) left injured in the first half and we think we saw she'd taken her pads off but she returned later to play offensive guard and was getting close up and personal ... more here
