Here we go again….

S0, having thought I was finished with the RWC 2015 (Rugby World Cup) after my last shift at Wembley, England Rugby, the organisers, ask for volunteers for the remaining matches at Twickenham. This includes the quarter finals on Saturday 17th/18th October, the semi-finals the weekend after that and the final the weekend after that on 31st October. With previous commitments I offer myself for the Sunday semi-final on 25th October and the final on the 31st. England Rugby accept that so I am sent my new schedule which means start times (at Twickenham) of 10.30am through to 7.30pm on both days. Long days and I’m not even guaranteed to see ANY of the games, mind you with England out I’m only slightly interested  in the other home nations winning, unless its Wales or Scotland. I’m still part of SPS which is spectator services, greeting fans, directing them to the right gates or shouting through a megaphone. The crowds in general are fantastic, and gave us full support, really embracing us as volunteers. The Kiwis were nice, the Irish were boisterous and the other teams I engaged with were Argentina and Romania both the fans of which wre great.
Watch this space for reports on my Twickers experience!
