#RWC2015 – Reasons to take your mind off Saturday

So, Saturday Night was a bit of a shock, or was it?

Wales’ win over England at Twickenham in their Rugby World Cup Pool A game was historic and momentous for so many reasons.

And it has really put the pressure on the tournament hosts ahead of what is now a massive ‘do or die’ encounter with Australia, again at Twickenham.

(and if you need a few positive pointers ahead of the latter, read here)

However, to take your mind off that (or increase the excitement in the build-up to Saturday, after a few days break at the start of this week, there are other group games to look forward to this week.

Notably Wales v Fiji on Thursday (particularly from an English, Welsh and Australian perspective), and then South Africa v Scotland before the big clash in south west London come Saturday night

Here in the birthplace of rugby football, the Enjoy Rugby Festival continues.

Despite not actually hosting any games, Rugby as the #ProudHome of the game is hosting an official Rugby World Cup 2015 Fanzone.

Located on the old market place at a Rugby Village, the Fanzone will screen matches from the Tournament on a giant screen. The town is also hosting a family festival celebrating Rugby’s heritage from 12 September to 6 November 2015, with a packed programme of events covers the arts, engineering, literature, film, sport, science, and food and drink, all of which celebrates a part of Rugby’s history and heritage
