On Saturday 27th August, a few friends and I will be at the Rugby League Carnegie Challenge Cup final at Wembley stadium. To watch the culmination of an eight-month long tournament. Luckily, to get our Bordeaux we won’t have to fight our way through the scrum at the bar, as we will be entertained in one of the corporate boxes. A delicious three-course meal, a post-match cheese board and an abundance of wine and champagne is the only way watch rugby. Dinner jackets, white shirts and ties at the ready!
My long forgotten rugby boots, discarded from my school days, may even find themselves making an appearance in anticipation of the event… Although on second thoughts, these rugby ball cufflinks may have to suffice instead.
