Is anyone else watching the Touch Rugby European Championships? Today is the finals day but there has been coverage of the four days on BBC Sport and YouTube, which will be available to view over the next few weeks.
The England Touch Association and Rugby Football Union have joined forces to grow Touch in England to coincide with the European Touch Championships, so the sport should be growing in popularity over the next few years.
It's a fast moving, inclusive game that both boys and girls can play; there are teams for several age ranges and there's great camaraderie. (Our daughter has just played her first international games in her thirties.)
Take a look, it's a great game.

H was a keen rugby player well into veteran class and
both our children played touch rugby when young. I admit I wasn't aware that it's played at Championship level. I'll have to take a look, thanks.
