Middlemiss Embroidery in Jedburgh, Scotland has rushed to the aid of England's Rugby World Cup final team when earlier this week seven of the squad wanted their footwear emblazoned to mark the occasion in Paris. Working frantically since Wednesday mid afternoon, the customised boots with RWC 2007 on the tongue along with players' nicknames or initials on the side are now ready for action. Jason Robinson, Olly Barkley and Nick Easter chose to have their initials embroidered; and Mathew Tait (Taity), Lee Mears (Mearsy), Simon Shaw (Shawsy) and Mark Cueto (Cuets) opted for their nicknames. No word on Jonny the Boot Wilkinson, but I guess he will try to mark on the game.
I still fancy the Boks to do it.
