I don’t know Grant Cole. We are ‘friends’ on Facebook, whatever that means. l love his passion, think he has some whacky ideas (you’re friends confirm this Grant!), and I check out his stuff when he posts it. I picture him as one of those diehard, meathead props, … the kind that buy 4 beers after the game and hangs out with his prop teammate, and the day’s opposing props altogether by themselves at the end of a long wooden bar, purportedly to talk “Prop Stuff”.
I had a pretty amazing day today. Four hours before kickoff, I did not have a ticket to the match. My man, Victor Ubogu and his staff (thank-you Felicia, and his wife Ang) completely squared me away. I got a text , go to such and such address to pick up your ticket… I get there and I peak in and there are some pretty decent former players in there. Two RWC Champions (David Campese AUS, and Chester Williams RSA) and the great Mark Ella who retired in 1984 after leading the Wallabies to a Grand Slam tour of the UK.
