Rugby World Cup excitement builds

Wednesday 18 November 2020

The prospect of watching England rule the world in a home Rugby World Cup was all the incentive Peter Schultheiss needed to book his place at the Game’s global gathering in 2015.

It will be 12 years since Martin Johnson raised the Webb Ellis Trophy into the rain-soaked Sydney sky, confirming England as the greatest team in the world and elevating Johnson and his crew to the pantheons of greats.

On that star-studded night, England were roared on by thousands of fans, many of whom had travelled solely for that one Game. Sydney was awash with the colours of St George and the atmosphere was one of the reasons Peter re-booked with England Rugby Travel for 2015.

“I booked my ticket inclusive packages with England Rugby Travel early as I felt it could be a similar experience to when I celebrated with friends in Sydney in 2003,” he said.

“I like to watch England play rugby and the atmosphere at International games is very special.”

Peter has guaranteed his place at England’s pool games against both Wales and Australia, matches he believes will be too good to miss and he has also backed Stuart Lancaster’s vastly improving and evolving side to reach the knock out stages of the competition. 

“If England make it to the Final it will be a bonus, if they don’t it will still be a great spectacle that I would not want to miss,” Peter said.

“I am going to the semi-finals and the Final with the same five friends I was in Sydney with and my wife Melanie.  We have booked Platinum packages with England Ruby Travel, staying at the Dorchester for the semi-finals and the Ritz for the Final, as we wanted to make it the best experience possible and have some fun.”

“London is the perfect venue for the Final game. Sydney was the epitome of sporting generosity and London could be the same.”

“When the packages became available my colleagues brought it to my attention and we decided we did not want to miss the opportunity of being there in person”.
