Rugby union had to make its way into my top 62 challenges, and as I’ve been to the last two World Cups, I’m not about to miss the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan if I can help it – especially not after the Blossom’s sterling (and astounding) performance at 2015.
Sadly my 2015 attendance was cut short a week early, as Mum was killed the day after I got back from watching England play Uruguay up in Manchester, and before I attended the Quarter Finals at Twickenham. A friend benefited from those tickets (well it was Wales that ended up playing!). The rest of the cup I watched via Facetime with a friend (i.e. he held up his iPad in front of his big TV as I couldn’t get it during the middle of the night in Adelaide.
So come September/October 2019, I will be cheering on England, as well as the Wallabies, in the pool games – just hopefully not the two in the same pool again!
