Here we go, the opening day of the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan and Day 1 of my 45 Days of Rugby, the birthplace of the game.
Today's images casts a nod to how the game all started here in Rugby.
The image below of the plaque at Rugby School perhaps explains it quite nicely.
Plus with today also seeing the opening ceremony of the tournament in Japan,here's a throwback (no pun intended) to four years ago and the promo video for RWC 2015.
Part of the video was shot at Rugby School with the odd famous face, both rugby-related or otherwise, having various cameos
This photo - with two of those famous faces - is displayed on the entrance to The Close.
Relive the promo video from 2015 again on the link below.
