Not a lot of people know that Webb Ellis retired to Menton for health reasons, as Victorians used to.
For those of you who don't know: the piece of metal that all the rugby teams of the world are currently playing for bears his name. He was the Rugby schoolboy who picked the ball up and run.
Anyway, there has been a frighftul brouhaha about the state of his final resting place - it had been allowed to fall into disrepair and was on the verge of tumbling into the sea. Thankfully, it has all been sorted out by a collaboration between the good folk of Menton, Rugby school and the sports federation - nice statue, path, gate, coffee shop etc.
