THERE’S ONLY 24 little hours until England do battle with Australia for the Cook Cup in the first November Test. It is also 10 years since these two sides tangled in the 2003 Rugby World Cup final.
So how does Rugby World celebrate and honour such fine landmarks? By getting England’s Tom Youngs and David Wilson to batter through our Pump Up the Ball Challenge, of course!
Youngs is starting at hooker against the Wallabies on Saturday, with Wilson on the bench. However, forgetting their rugby duties, this is a real demonstration of warrior spirit. They even took time to slag off their team-mates’ hair and tell us who sleepwalks and snores.
Tom Youngs, Mike Brown and David Wilson appeared on behalf of Marriott Hotels, official partner of England Rugby. Marriott has teamed up with River Cottage to change the face of hotel food by focusing on seasonal, local, organic and sustainable produce.Like Rugby World?
