Day 13 – Victory at the home of Rugby

After 12 days of anticipation, the wait was finally over. The game that has talked about at length over the whole tour was finally upon us. A dirty England side taking on the proud Wallabies. Mr Lever has been nervous since the English lost to an in form Wales team.



But, before this once in a life time match at Twickenham Stadium, the boys were given time to explore the streets of London. Every boy on tour quickly ran towards one of the biggest sports stores in the world – ┬áLily Whites. Everyone had two and a half hours to explore London. After a full day of shopping everybody put their Wallabies shirts on, except for Mr Lever and Charlie Timpson, who dressed up in English colours.

We arrived at the home of rugby ready for an impressive game of footy. So, the game got underway and of course the Aussies scored first. 17-3 at half-time and things weren’t looking good for Mr Lever and Charlie who were very nervous. In the end Australia smashed the hosts by twenty points in one of the most exciting games of rugby any of us had ever seen. Go the Wallabies!!!
