Billy No-Tries (hopefully)

A quick bit of amusing trivia before I head home to pack for a Six Nations weekend in Wales.

The man you can see above is the magnificently-named Billy Twelvetrees who tomorrow will win his second England rugby cap against Scotland.

And what does his dad do, I hear you cry?  (or maybe it's just one of the many voices I hear in my head).

Yes, you (or the mystery voice) got it first time - Mr Twelvetrees Snr is a tree surgeon.

Hearing that has made my weekend, and it hasn't even started.

PS If you're looking out for Billy during the game, he will of course be wearing the England number 12 jersey.
