VU Limited, the luxury sports hospitality and travel company founded by former England Rugby prop Victor Ubogu have joined together with classic London sports bar Temple Walkabout to bring you an insider’s glimpse of the most anticipated Pool weekend of Rugby World Cup 2015.
Two of the world’s greatest Rugby Wingers, Shane Williams (Wales) and David Campese (Australia) will share their predictions on the titanic RWC2015 Wales v Australia clash before the live screening of New Zealand v Tonga on Friday October 9th, 2015.
The two rugby greats are from opposite sides of the world and heroes in their home nations, Campese playing entirely in the amateur era and Williams enjoying the dawn of professional Rugby in Wales, but these two are more similar than one might think. Holding the 2nd and 3rd positions of leading rugby international try scorers, a long list of trophies and accolades, and playing during their respective countries’ arguably greatest decades, it is a special occurrence to have both legends share the stage.
In their own unique styles, David and Shane will offer their thoughts on what could be the most crucial deciding game of Pool A, taking place at Twickenham on Saturday 10th October – and open the floor to questions from the audience. Irish prop forward and TV pundit Paul Wallace will emcee the evening and is likely to share some tall tour stories of his own.
VU Limited are an official sub-agent for Rugby World Cup 2015 and offer ticket inclusive packages for all matches but this event is a deviation from their usual style of luxury hospitality. Victor Ubogu said about the event, “It’s great to find the perfect reason to return to my old haunt in Temple, where I used to own Shoeless Joe’s. Shane and Campo are absolute rugby greats so there are no better two pundits to offer some inside scoop on how Wales and Australia might feel before this very important match. Prepare for an evening of great banter, convivial atmosphere and superb rugby!”
Tickets cost £35+vat. Advance booking is necessary for this event and your ticket includes a free burger and pint of lager, exclusive access to the Q&A and screening of New Zealand v Tonga. To book, visit the VU Ltd website at www.vultd.co.uk or call 01225 788880.
