The Rugby World Cup is almost upon us!
So excited to see the Rugby World Cup (the Webb Ellis Cup) today outside of our lovely Cathedral!
Getting to see it and stand next to it was amazing. Probably a once in a lifetime opportunity to get up close and personal with the trophy. We weren’t allowed to touch it. Or raise it above our heads but hopefully the England boys will do that later in the year!
There was lots going on. Different age groups playing rugby, Rugbytots, wheelchair rugby and local clubs promoting themselves.
The cup itself was unveiled at 9:30am. Local clubs having their pictures first with the trophy then it was our turn! As a Northampton Saints supporter I had to wear my replica shirt on this occasion, which was to me anyway, a really big deal!
