"Swing Low, Swee Chariot" is synonomous with English Rugby, which is remarkable given it's historical links to the Underground Railroad, an organisation fighting black slavery in America. The story goes that in 1988 England were on an abyssmal run of results and were losing 0-3 to Ireland at Twickenham. A Nigerian born English winger was having a stomer, Chris Oti. He scored three tries in this game with England running out victors 35-3. On the scoring of each try, a group of boys from a Benedictine School were behind the posts and chorused with this song. By the time he scored his third try, the whole of Twickenham was joining in. So now you know why this song is sung by the English, you can wear it with pride to all England Six Nations and World Cup games. Heck, it even looks great down the pub!
