Bit of fun I saw on Facebook, can you list a team you've seen play live, for every letter of the alphabet? Can't imagine many people will have an X or Q, nor a U that's not Ulster or Z that's not Zebre. The more obscure the team, the better. Mine are:

Albi
Boroughmuir
Cumnock
Dunvant
Edinburgh
Fylde (not seen them play but I have been to their ground)
Georgia
Harlequins
Italy
Jersey
Kirkby Lonsdale
Leinster A
Mull
Newcastle (of course!)
Overmach Parma
Pertemps Bees
Q
Rossendale
Stade Aurillacois
Tynedale
U
Vale of Lune
Warrington
X
Yorkshire Carnegie
Z

One that nobody has mentioned for P so far, that I'm sure a fair few of you will have seen is Petrarca Padova.

Or Plymouth Albion last time the Falcons were in the second division. I remember a youthful Cowan Dickie with a terrible mullet.

I think you'll find there's a number of folk who've seen a 'U' other than Ulster. Its' slightly obtuse but the French team is officially known as Union Bordeaux BŤgles.

Thanks Alas. As I recall the Wolves weren't a proper club side, but stitched together for this competition.
