Whole lotta love

Rob Firth – head of Capita Architecture – is sports mad and also a devotee of those masters of rock, Led Zeppelin. So, imagine his joy when Zep’s front man, Robert ‘feel the juice run down my leg’ Plant, pitched up in Firth’s hometown of Monmouth sometime in the 1980s and got stuck into the local sports teams. Not only did Plant play cricket for a season, he also organised a rugby match with the local borstal school and even managed a try. Firth’s highlight of those heady days? Zep’s fifth member – Roy Harper’s girlfriend – streaking across the cricket pitch. Firth said she wasn’t all that, but it at least lines up a Zep pun: Hats Off to Roy Harper’s girlfriend.
