Rugby World Cup Bangers
As I prepare to rise at 3.45am tomorrow morning to see the All Blacks play Argentina in the their first pool game of the Rugby World Cup, I may have a banger for breakfast.
Croots Farm Shop in Derbyshire have made a special snarler for the Rugby World Cup. Some of the sales from these sausages will go to the Derbyshire Children's Holiday Centre a charity that provides holidays for disadvantaged children. See this link for information about the sausages.
I have asked if Croots will courier some to NZ. I'm backing the All Blacks to bring home the bacon and the William Webb Ellis Trophy. Will this happen? All I know is that the TV will be watched, and sleep deprivation will exist for the next six weeks. Bring it on!
I watched the South Africa v Japan match this morning, I was delighted to witness the biggest upset in World Cup history, as Japan scored a great and very late try to win on the final whistle, 34-32. On a serious note it is interesting to observe that during a massive refugee crisis, Japan took less than five refugees last year. There are six rugby refugees from New Zealand in the Japanese team, players who would have loved to play for the All Blacks, but settle to play for the Cherry Blossoms, in the fluid world of rugby national allegiances. It would be great if Japan could fit in a few more real refugees too. Who knows what contribution they might make?
