On the eve of the semi-final World Cup Under 20 rugby match - England v South Africa - Haileybury pupil Jamie George (BFr) writes to us from Tokyo: "So far we have played Japan, Scotland and Samoa, and we have won all our games, which means we come out top of our group. Samoa was the highlight as we got to face the haka, an experience I will never forget. The playing conditions are very hard as, despite not being sunny, it is extremely humid which means that we lose a lot of weight during the games. We are now drawn to play South Africa in the semi-final
