ANGELIC-looking tots will be going all Jonah Lomu when South Yorkshire’s first rugby club for three to six-year-olds kicks off next weekend.

The sessions, announced in The Diary last month, will start with a launch party on Saturday, May 7, at Abbeydale Sports Club, Abbeydale, Sheffield.

The day coincides with Yorkshire playing Cheshire in a senior match – and youngsters will get a run about on the pitch before the game.

Tickets are £8 for adults. Kids go free. Starts 2pm.

The first session proper will then be held the following Sunday at the same venue from 10am. It’s £6 per child.

DIY Moby flick

IT’S Moby Dick as you’ve never seen it before – shot in one man’s kitchen, using his family to play the main characters and his sink for the sea scenes.

Sounds bizarre? It is – but it’s also accurate. And not a little funny.

This is a short film recorded by Israeli artist Guy Ben-Ner and now showing at Site Gallery, in Brown Street, Sheffield city centre, as part of his Spies exhibition.

“It’s an incredible piece of work,” says gallery director Laura Sillars.

Also included in the exhibition is the piece Drop the Monkey in which Guy, 41, from Tel Aviv, documents 25 trips between his home town and Berlin over the course of a year.

Runs to May 14.
