11-Nov-12 Fijians at a loss..

In Blog, Personal on November 10, 2012 at 10:04 am

Yesterday I had a complete break from technology for the day and had the pleasure at being a corporate guest of the England versus Fiji friendly game at Twickenham.

England were certainly in dominant form yesterday scoring several tries in a 54-12 victory.

Twickenham is an excellent stadium with very good facilities, but it is yet another national stadium in far from the most perfect position in London for transport.

With this in mind and a opportunity to walk off the corporate hospitality, we did the 2 mile hike to Richmond taking on route one or two local public houses! I’d recommend this to anyone, as Twickenham and Richmond have some friendly hostels.

Although not a huge Rugby Union fan, we had a fantastic day yesterday that was made all the better by the friendly crowd and player behaviour both inside and outside the ground.

On leaving the ground, we shared an elevator with Lewis Moody, ex England international, who was the perfect gentlemen in ensuring the elevator could accommodate as many adults and children as possible.

Football can learn a thing or two from this sport!
