O2 are sponsoring an interesting new service, whereby people can register on their site to receive a phone call from one of the England players straight after the match.
It’s a free service, so I’ve signed up just to see what they say. Here’s the link – http://www.o2blueroom.co.uk/Rugby/SummerTour/Default.aspx.
I think it will be a voicemail, as opposed to an opportunity to quiz the players on their performance live from the changing room, but I’ve been wondering what they might say…
Andrew Sheridan: “We dominated in the scrum, they had some big lads but none as big as me. I pushed them back and gave them a hard time all day, but their backs were pretty good and that was the difference.”
Topsy Ojo: “It was a tough game, but I’m pleased to have made my debut. I would have liked to get more ball, but the forwards did a great job with their driving at the fringes of rucks. It’s just a shame there were too many turnovers, otherwise it could have been our day. Also, it turns out that that Suivatu chap (or whatever his name is) is quite quick…he skinned me a couple of times.”
Rob Andrew: “We learned a lot tonight. We learned about the All Blacks, we learned about our defence, we learned a lot about our set piece and about ourselves. We will be conducting a review of the game over the next six months to see what else we can learn from it, and really take that forward into our next game.”
