The International Championship 1968-69
IRELAND v. ENGLAND
A new captain — Lancastrian Richard Greenwood — six new caps, and the thirty-first cap for Budge Rogers of Bedford (equal-ling Sir Wavell Wakefield 's forty-one-year-old record) form the nucleus of England's XV for this their first fixture of the current season against an Irish side which must have serious hopes of the championship title after their decisive victory over France.
Ireland field an unchanged side except for the return of Mike Gibson , former national and British Lions fly-half, who is brought in at centre for this match, thus maintaining the successful half-back pairing of Roger Young and the new fly-half, twenty-year-old Barry McGann.

The Realms of Gold
Hernan Cortes was the first and greatest of the Conquistadors of New Spain. His confrontation with Montezuma and the empire of the Aztecs in Mexico in 1519 was the moment when for the very first time, in all their power and might, the Old World and the New stood face to face. Cortes's achievement was extraordinary-no less than the defeat of an entire civilisation with only 400 soldiers at his command. But his victory would have been impossible but for one incredible fact—Montezuma believed that Cortes was his God, the Feathered Serpent Quetzalcoatl.
John Julius Norwich recounts the extraordinary interplay of mythology and mounted warfare, of human sacrifice and brilliant strategy which led ultimately to the creation of Mexico.
