Every week, England 7s star Mathew Drew Turner takes on the role of brazen, if not cheeky, reporter for RWU.
CLANWILLIAM, SOUTH AFRICA – Firstly, I’d like to thank Declan Yeats for filling in for me last week. He did a splendid job for a forward, I guess. Oh, and Merry Christmas to everyone! I hope you got everything you asked Santa for. I’m currently writing this in Clanwilliam, a small town on a dam, sipping a mojito. Life’s good. 🙂
Here is my excuse for not being able to do my piece last week:
1) My laptop decided it wanted to be on holiday along with me, and f*#ked out.
2) It’s no holiday if you need the internet in a 3rd world country. The world wide web, aka internet, was taking ages to dial-up.
The World of Rugby slowed down a bit for the Holidays, but that has allowed me, with the assistance of my relaxed state, to put my thinking cap on and offer you some Random Rugby Thoughts:
Random Rugby Thought #1: First, how about a match between the winner of the Super 15 and the Heineken Cup or the top 4 of each competition. This will help sort out the whole Northern vs Southern Hemisphere battle!
Random Rugby Thought #2: Does anyone have a millionaire friend? Well, if you do here’s my proposal: A Sevens IPL (International Professional League)! I think it would be unreal! So please, let me know and we’ll get the ball rolling toute suite.
Random Rugby Thought #3: With Wellington and Las Vegas the next two stops of the HSBC Series just around the corner, it’s nearly time to get started with hyping it up again. So, if you can get the time off and scrape up a bit of cash, get to these tournaments! They are great.
Random Rugby Thought #4: If there are any questions you want me to answer, comment below and I’ll answer them for you when the Internet allows.
Random Rugby Thought #4: Have an awesome New Year!
