With the much anticipated Rugby World Cup 2011 less than a year away, the hype is building as fans book their packages to be a part of one of the greatest shows on earth. In this great video Martin Johnson and Rob Andrew speak exclusively to England Rugby Travel about their memories of previous World Cups, and give their thoughts about 2011.
Beating the All Blacks in New Zealand has always been a tricky task. To win the World Cup, the chances are pretty high that you may come up against the home side, which means youd need all the armoury available to you.
Martin Johnson's England team will have an extra boost in that they will have a large contingent over there to back their side. Ticket sales soared in the first few weeks of going on sale with England Rugby Travel, with the most popular package being the Quarter-finals to Final option.
Johnson, team manager, is delighted with the response so far.
"The Rugby World Cup is now the worlds third largest sporting event and because it only happens once every four years it is special. New Zealand is a nation steeped in rugby history and it will be buzzing so it's great to learn that so many England fans are planning on heading out for what promises to be a great Tournament.
"They want to be able to say ' I was there ' and we are delighted that they are going to be."
In this stirring video Johnson and Andrew talk about what the incredible atmosphere was like in Australia in 2003 and then touch on the beauty of New Zealand and how great of a place it is to tour and visit.
Its a great advert for both the country and the sport, so check it out and do what you can to make sure youll look back in a few years time and say 'I was there'.
