End of Season Gloucester Quiz

End of Season Gloucester Quiz

coleser 01 Jun 2018 07:03 am said..

I thought I’d publish the Gloucester Quiz I prepared for the group of pals who stand with me in the Shed week in, week out. I asked these questions in the Conference Suite of the Cross Keys after the Bath match in a pub quiz format. The team captained by Paulo (occasionally of this parish) vanquished in some style.

Please don’t post any answers. And please don’t use the internet!

I’ll publish the solution after an appropriate period of time.

Thanks, lads. There are one or two ‘forgotten’ players in the list of Scots/Welsh.
