A distressed England are out of the World Cup, the vultures in the press are on attack and the RFU are starting an inquest about where it all went wrong. Lancaster’s job is on the line, Robshaw’s captaincy is questioned, and of course we can’t have an angry conversation about rugby without throwing the Great Sam Burgess Debate in there too. Let’s be honest, no one really expected England’s World Cup to be over just two and a half weeks after the tournament began. However, it wasn’t a dream. England are out and they will retreat and rebuild.
 
Meanwhile, remember the build-up…ENGLAND IS HOSTING THE RUGBY WORLD CUP! We are still in the midst of a huge rugby party and we must continue to be generous and gracious hosts. Twickenham has never sounded so passionate, smaller stadiums are rocking and the talent on show has produced some of the classiest and most exciting games of rugby we’ve ever witnessed. This international tournament celebrates the game we love and we must stay on board. At the VU Dinners, we’ve heard fantastic stories from the likes of Springbok Chester Williams, Irish prop Paul Wallace, French legend Serge Betsen and the All Blacks’ Smokin’ Joe Stanley. During these evenings, it doesn’t matter where we’re from; we join together and support rugby. Only 3 more opportunities remain to join us at one of these very special and glamorous occasions in London – 16th, 23rd, 30th October – so forget the action on the pitch – revive your passion by remembering rugby memories past.
 
This week, Twickenham Stadium welcomes two rivals who usually only travel to this part of South West London with hopes of smashing England. On Saturday, the old enemy isn’t even there but Wales and Australia will fight it out to take the top spot in their pool. Whoever wins Saturday could very well be in the Final on 31st October. These matches matter.
 
VU continue to support the Home Nations and hope you will join us to cheer on Wales, Scotland and Ireland in the Quarter Finals. We have ticket packages for Twickenham and an amazing opportunity to travel in style to Millennium Stadium on our privately chartered Orient Express on 17th and 18th October. There’s a lot of excellent rugby ahead, so don’t miss out. Who knows when we’ll next see RWC on our shores again?! Contact the VU office for remaining availability on 01225 788880. But please forgive us if we sound a little tired – we have some wounds to lick…
