Toon, Toon, Black & White Army!

Long time readers of this blog will know that I am no fan of the new-fangled, tight-fitting, multi-coloured, sponsor-laden monstrosities which purport to be rugby shirts these days and yearn for  the thick, heavy cotton, warm and comforting garments of bygone days.

That said, may I express my 100% support for the decision of Newcastle Falcons to wear a special edition black and white striped shirt when they play Northampton in 'The Big One' at St James' Park on Saturday 24th March in aid of the My Name'5 Doddie Foundation.

Not only will profits from the game and sales of the shirts go to a fantastic cause - research into Motor Neurone Disease (MND) (with which Newcastle and Scottish legend Doddie Weir was diagnosed last year) – as a long time (and long-suffering) follower of Newcastle United, how could I possibly object to the Falcons sporting the iconic black and white stripes at the “Cathedral on the Hill?”

I mean, what’s not to like?
