Rugby fans are in for a treat to whet they appetite as this year’s World Cup rapidly approaches.
McGettigan’s will be playing host to three legends of the game who will be answers questions and telling the odd tale or two.
Peter Stringer, Lewis Moody and Thinus Delport will be in the JLT branch offering a unique insight into the upcoming showpiece and also reliving some of the glory days of World Cups from down the years.
Taking place on Saturday September 14, the event is the perfect curtain raiser for McGettigan’s World Cup coverage – which is sure be a favourite of fans in Dubai during the tournament.
Moody will be able to draw on his experiences of being part of England’s World Cup winning squad in 2003, and will be more than happy to talk about their current crop – with Eddie Jones’ men looking in ominous form as they head over to The Land of the Rising Sun. On the back of wins over Wales, Ireland and
Italy, England will go into the tournament as one of the favourites to lift the Webb Ellis trophy on November 2.
Stringer is always a favourite when he heads to these shores and this will be no exception. The build up for Ireland has been a little more tricky – especially the trip to Twickenham that they will want to forget. Expect a lot of honesty from the former Munster scrum half coupled with some quick wit, and humour – he’s one not to be missed.
Finally, we have Thinus Delport. The 18-times capped South African who is a familiar face in the UK as not only a player but also TV analyst. He will be buoyed by South Africa’s recent form which saw them win the Rugby Championship with commanding wins over Australia and Argentina, along with a thrilling draw in New Zealand. Still developing, they will be ones to watch in Japan.
With tickets at just AED100 which includes two free drinks, this is sure to be THE evening that really gets everyone in the Rugby World Cup mood.
