IT'S not very often a tag rugby team gets to play at Twickenham with star player Paul Sackey in their line up. But today Sackey swapped his England shirt for the colours of Great Yarmouth's Doh Nutters.

IT'S not very often a tag rugby team gets to play at Twickenham with star player Paul Sackey in their line up. But today Sackey swapped his England shirt for the colours of Great Yarmouth's Doh Nutters.

The Doh Nutters were appearing at the home of rugby after winning this summer's Scrum on the Beach event in Yarmouth.

They were selected by London Wasps and England wing Sackey, for displaying the best beach rugby style, both on and off the pitch.

Sackey said: “The Doh Nutters did very well and were very enthusiastic - to play at Twickenham is a great honour. There are all sorts of abilities and ages here and the day is really about having fun.

“I was involved last year and enjoyed it so much I went round to all eight beach resorts this year.”
