Well, you're bound to do better than our boys in India!

Just come across this after the latest OEA e-newsletter. I was a member of the first Eton tour to HK/Australia in 1987/88. It was pretty spartan back then - we spent Christmas night sleeping on a balcony dormitory at Cranbrook in Sydney with plenty of giant cockroaches for company - and I think we were a less good team (played 7, lost 5, drawn 2 I seem to remember). But we had a laugh and played against a young Greg Blewett in Adelaide. There was also lots of "Lord Snooty" type press from the Sydney Morning Herald and the Melbourne Age. JMR was the common thread - is he still as interested in keeping up the suntan and highlights?
