Tonight was the launch of the 500 Days to go to Rugby World Cup at City Hall. Great to see what they did lighting up City Hall earlier as a giant ball – an iconic photo. It was good to share an evening with so many familiar friends from the world if rugby and some of the host towns and cities representatives. There is a confidence growing that this should be an amazing Rugby World Cup for both the rugby fan and newcomers to the game. The game is growing worldwide and it would be great to grow (in its various formats) at home too.
I love being involved in major events as well as grass roots sport and the RWC on home soil is a great opportunity to combine both passions
