HARLEM, NYC – When and All Blacks Legend like hooker Sean Fitzpatrick comes to town, it would be great to see him – maybe even get a photo. But our man Johnathan Wicklow Barberie has a way with Rugby Royalty, and with help from the good folks at Laureus, The Front Row Group, Play Rugby USA and P.S. 208 in Harlem, he and Mr. Fitzpatrick got to have a leisurely chat about rugby.
What did they chat about? Good question. You can see for yourself but the topics ranged from:
–Six Nations Expansion: What are his feelings on Tier 2 nations like the USA and Canada, Georgia and Uruguay being part of a Promotion/Relegation component of this storied European competition?
-Is Northern Hemisphere rugby boring as Steve Hansen intimated?
-What does Sean thinks about 7s? Is it a crime against humanity to a 15s All-World hooker?
-How/will professional rugby take hold in the USA?
-What are his thoughts on Sir John Kirwan and playing on the wing?
There’s that and more, so just sit back and enjoy.
