Suffolk soprano Laura Wright will be England's official anthem singer when they face Scotland in the Six Nations at Twickenham on Saturday.
She's been visiting schools in her home county to encourage more young people to take up the sport.
She's an ambassador for the All Schools Rugby Project, promoted by England's governing body the RFU.
"I have three older brothers who all play the sport so it was very much part of my family as I grew up. But it wasn't until a couple of years ago when I started playing in London. So I just wanted to come down here today to show the sport if it's found earlier in life as well that there's potential in there which can be realised."
People in Northamptonshire are being urged to double-check their Lotto tickets as an unclaimed Lotto jackpot of £2.5 million is believed to belong to a ticket bought in the county.
A National Lottery spokesman said the prize-winning ticket was purchased in the south Northamptonshire area for the draw on February 7.
The six winning numbers were 3, 6, 15, 17, 18, 35 and the Bonus Ball was 22.
The lucky ticket-holder has until August 6, 2015 to claim their prize.
If no-one comes forward then the prize money will go to help National Lottery-funded projects across the UK.
"We're eager to find the mystery ticket-holder and unite them with their winnings - this amazing prize could really make a huge difference to somebody's life. We're urging everyone who bought a Lotto ticket in this area to check their old tickets again or look anywhere a missing ticket could be hiding.
A set of specially designed mugs made to help raise money for East Anglia's Children's Hospices go on sale today.
The Duchess of Cambridge who is patron to the charity saw the Emma Bridgewater creations being made when she visited the factory in February.
Five pounds from the sale of each mug, which features ladybirds, will go to the charity for its 'Nook' appeal to build a new hospice in Norfolk.
Easton and Otley College is getting into the derby spirit as it prepares to host its annual lambing weekend in Norfolk.
The event will be taking place on Saturday 28 Feb and Sunday 1 March, with the second day coinciding with one of the biggest East Anglian derbies in memory, as Norwich City take on arch rivals Ipswich Town at Carrow Road.
The college, which has campuses based in both counties, also has a variety of sheep breeds. To get in the mood for the lambing weekend - and taking a leaf out of the Latitude music festival's book - the farm staff decided to get into the spirit of the football match by dyeing one of their Norfolk Horn breed rams Yellow and Green and one of its Suffolk breeds blue and white.
It's Shrove Tuesday, and that means the annual Olney Pancake Race.
It's a tradition which dates back to 1445. In fact, the Buckinghamshire town claims to be where the first ever pancake race took place. Children have their own event - but only women from Olney can take part in the main 415 yard dash.
Pancake races are also taking place from Little Totham in Essex, to Lowestoft in Suffolk and at the Catholic Cathedral in Norwich among other venues.

Meet Milly, winner of a competition to find the cutest dog in Suffolk.
Photographer Josh Coulson, from Ipswich, ran the competition last month. Of the 285 entries, only two dogs were chosen by all three judges.
The winner was Milly, a three-legged Boxer rescued as a puppy from a dog sanctuary in Spain by Dominic and Karen Stroud, of Red Lodge, Suffolk, for their seven-year-old son, Liam.
Second place went to Pepper, a six-month-old Great Dane.
Mr Coulson will now use a picture of Milly for his new dog photography business.
Tanya Mercer has been to see Milly and to find out what makes her just that little bit cuter than others. Here's her report:
And if you think your dog is even cuter, email us a photo at firstname.lastname@example.org or post it to our Facebook page before 1pm Wednesday.
