Rhino watching in southern Spain

Yes I know this sounds unbelievable but you can actually watch Rhinos here in sunny Spain!

OK. So the Rhinos in question have 2 legs,¬† there’s 13 of them and they charge into one another like the real thing. I am of course talking about the Leeds Rhinos, who won the Super League Grand Final last night after beating St Helens 24-16. We had a fiesta here at my cortijo with some friends and my daughter.

Rather too many local shots were consumed prior to the game, but this made for a very merry atmosphere. Have you ever tried to explain the game of Rugby League in a foreign language whilst being thoroughly intoxicated?

This was followed by a traditional spanish curry and chips, which in time honoured fashion, I proceeded to dribble all the way down my prize Rhinos replica shirt (sad eh?), to join and mix with the red wine and absinthe stains.

I watched a reply of the game this morning just in case I was either dreaming or had passed out and missed most of the action. No, we still won it!
