Rhetoric challenge Hodder once more

Rhetoric strode into Elements Playroom and threw down the traditional challenge to the young men of Hodder “… to play, at an appointed time and place, at the English game of bat and ball.”

The original challenge was given in Latin and, as the Romans were not at all as civilised as they are made out to be, they did not play Cricket and so there is no translation available for the name. Be that as it may, the challenge was accepted with vigour and battle soon commenced.
