Having played rugby at university and having worked for a time at Gloucester Rugby Club, I have a strong interest in the game and have enjoyed working on various events, including 5 Rugby World Cup’s, 4 Lions tours and many 6 Nations and Hong Kong 7’s. I have also worked on numerous cricket tours and have been fortunate enough to visit many great destinations over the years. My favourites include New Zealand, South Africa, the Caribbean and Hong Kong.
I am from a sporty family and have played several sports at a competitive level over the years, including hockey, rugby and horse riding. My main sport nowadays is rowing, and I enjoy being out on the water at Evesham and getting involved at competitions.
Barbara and I had a wonderful weekend in Dublin with Venatour. We have been to Dublin many times for Six Nations matches but never with Venatour. The hotel was ideal because of it's nearness to the ground and numerous restaurants. We found our tour guides very friendly and helpful. Our fellow supporters were also very friendly and pleasant. A thoroughly enjoyable trip despite the result! We hope to travel with Venatour to future matches.
Just wanted to say a big thank you for organising our Rugby tour this year. Everything worked as planned and we all had a fantastic time. The hotel was just at the level required, bar below was enjoyed by all. Breakfast at the hotel followed by pasta at both the clubs and Pizza on Saturday night all delicious. Your associates on the ground in Italy where very nice and helpful and on time. Our hosts at both clubs welcomed us and the boys played some great rugby at a very competitive level. As you know the success of a tour is really the bonding experience that happens in all directions and I have to say this tour achieved it. Smiley tired happy faces left Gatwick on our return with a great appreciation for Rugby and its Family. Well done and thankyou from all of us at Chobham RFC Colts for helping to make this tour a success.
