A Priority once in a lifetime experience to remember
For any England Rugby super fan the chance to spend some time with the team in such a massive match week would be a dream. Well, that is what two lucky Priority customers Jim and Carly Hadfield got to do for the England v Wales NatWest 6 Nations game at Twickenham.
How did they get this amazing opportunity we hear you ask? Easy. They like thousands of O2 customers entered a once in a lifetime competition to remember through Priority.
The week started off with a pitch side view of Eddie Jones putting his team through an intense training session, fine tuning ball-by-ball tactics leading up to the Wales game. Lunch with the England Rugby squad followed and an opportunity to compliment some of the England players on their training techniques.
After this training day, Jim and Carly spent the rest of the week pinching themselves about what an amazing first day they had. Then came England v Wales match day.
We brought them down to a very quiet Twickenham Stadium hours before the 82,000 plus were due to arrive. First off a breakfast with former England and British & Irish Lions player Ugo Monye. Then straight to the changing rooms to help the kit staff lay out the team’s kit and everything else the players need to get ready for a big game.
Then came kick-off. First off they sang the national anthem at pitch-side. Certainly a wow moment. Front row seats for a pulsating England 12-6 win over Wales and then, once the celebrations had finished, Jim and Carly put on their best evening outfits and dined with a victorious England Rugby squad in the Spirit of Rugby.
“Thank you again for the whole experience. It’s one we will never ever forget. Thank you to the whole of O2 for making it all possible.”
What an amazing day and a once in a lifetime experience Jim and Carly will never forget thanks to Priority.
