Sports occupies most my life from NFL to Rugby. I have teams across all sports but there is something about the All Blacks. When I watch them play I feel a connection that I don’t with any other team. I followed them to Chicago to play the USA Eagles which gives you a little insight into my fandom.
At the end of the day I really love rugby and I respect all opposition. I love to see the camaraderie between teams, I love to see them interact after games and I really like the way in which northern hemisphere teams form a line to applaud teams off the field. I guess I just love the fact that these absolute giants can go to battle for 80 minutes and give everything but once that final whistle is blown there is so much respect. A player that comes to mind who epitomises this is the great Springbok legend Jean de Villiers.
