|Aussie Rugby Ed Jenkins one of identical twins!|
Australian Sevens squad, captain Ed Jenkins is the second-leading try scorer in the team with 13 five-pointers this season.
Jenkins, alongside skipper Bernard Foley, is a Commonwealth Games silver-medallist and helped end Australia’s eight-year title drought on the world circuit at the London Sevens last year, scoring a try against Argentina in the semi-final to help secure Australia’s first Cup final appearance since Brisbane 2002. He led the Australian Sevens team to win the Cup at the HSBC Tokyo round in 2012.
His identical twin brother Jono is a well known Super Rugby player!
The New Colossus by Emma Lazarus
Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
