What an Invite!!

Just when you think your weeks and days cannot get any worse, then all of a sudden there is a Silver Lining (or should that be a Silver Fern) around a dark, black  cloud!!

I have been asked (yeah – I know a lot might say “Rob, mate, you sure about this one?”) to represent Sharksworld to celebrate “The Road to New Zealand” with Richie McCaw and John Smit!!!!!!!!! (Is there enough exclamation marks on my PC???) :grin:

John Smit, Captain of the reigning Rugby World Cup champions, and MasterCard Rugby Ambassador, Richie McCaw, will be uniting to urge South African rugby supporters to start securing their match tickets and planning their trips to New Zealand for Rugby World Cup 2011, to support South Africa in defending their grip on the Webb Ellis Cup.

I will be having lunch with these fine Gentelmen on Wednesday, 18 August 2010 at the Radisson Blu, Dolls!!! Eat your hearts out, Cupcakes!!!  ;-)

Now, Now – I would not be able to do this on my own (damn – can someone tell me how to stop this shaking and heart-thumping I am experiencing since about an hour ago??) Anyway, where were we??  :oops:

Oh, ja!

There might be opportunity to interview these guys – so a couple of good questions that will make me look like a serious rugby fundi, might come in handy!!  :lol:     Maybe some good technical ones, that REALLY might make me look like I know it ALL!! Letgo – you can even give me some stats to throw at them in a question!  :idea:

Seriously – Your help will be much appreciated – so look out for the “post-luncheon” article – right here on Sharksworld!!

Last, but not least…THANKS ROB AND SHARKSWORLD FOR THIS GREAT OPPORTUNITY!!

PS. I promise to behave..  ;-)

  • Ask John if he’s retiring after the Soccer City test?? I heard rumours on another site about that.

    And tell John I’ll be at the test and if they don’t win I’ll break into the dressing room and beat them all up :mrgreen:

  • All these good wishes and no questions what Ice should ask!?
    “Richie, it’s been a curse the past two WC where the AB’s peaked the year before the WC and did’nt show in the finals at all. do you think the curse has followed you to 2010/2011?”

    “John, the Boks played rather badly in 2006 but still won the Wc in 2007. Do you gain confidence that the AB’s are again on a peak (see question above) the year prior to the WC”

    I know the questions are quite similar yes, but just to get the input from both captains. And nobody would be able to predict the future….but it smells so familiar.

  • @Pokkel (Comment 18) : JOHN SMIT is not retiring, I follow him on Twitter and he was having a stab at a mate, jokingly saying that he will now retire and play with his dogs – then some bloggers twisted it… A few posts later John Smit says he was messing around…

  • What a sweet deal…

    Enjoy chick!!!

    Oh and as for a question…

    Ask both of them what is the most irritating thing about each other and their teams, i.e. what irritates John the most about Richie and the All Blacks and Richie on John and the Boks!

    (They were roomies once when they played for the BaaBaa’s)
