Back in 2011, I wrote this before the RWC kicked off.
I wrote it feeling nervous, as I think most of the country were after 24 years. But I wrote it being at peace with what might happen – because I wanted to enjoy the process. So yeah, I was possibly rationalizing the possibility of pain… and I’ll admit to sitting in absolute terror through most of the final.
But I also remember really enjoying the tournament – because I chose too.
So here’s to another fantastic celebration of sport, to sharing stories and to enjoying the ride.
