I went out to Bedford last night to watch the Barbarians play Bedford Blues in the 82nd Mobbs Memorial match.. it was a good game, and even had a cornish connection as one of the Barbarians was a Redruth player. As I don't own a Redruth shirt, I made do with a Barbarians top but cheered both teams equally. Although it was quite nippy, it didn't rain on the game for which I was grateful but glad to get back in the car at the end of the match.
It ended up with a score of 41 to Bedford and 74 to the Barbarians, but both teams played their hearts out given it is towards the end of the main season.
Anyone know what the Mobbs Memorial match is all about? I haven't yet managed to find anything out about it or why it came about.
