I’m watching the warm up game England vs Ireland, and World Cup game Australia vs England. If I’m good for a month, I get to go to the World Cup final with my Dad. Twickenham is my favourite stadium, I’ve been four times. Leicester Tigers are my favourite team.

Nick, what’s your favorite thing about Rugby? 

My favorite thing about going to a Rugby game is the atmosphere. It’s amazing. I like the singing, I only know the words to one song, one without any naughty words!

How do you cope with the English weather when watching live Rugby?

In the winter, I wear lots of clothes and jump up and down. In the summer I have lemonade and water to cool down.

What are your favorite snacks to eat during the game?

Before the game a have a bacon roll with ketchup. Sometimes a hotdog during a game. I’m allowed cola when I go to the Rugby.

How much do you love mud and why?

I like mud because you can splash around in it. But I don’t like it when you have to walk home and it’s all sticky.

Do you prefer watching Rugby at home on TV or live in a stadium?

At a stadium, it’s more lively than sitting and watching TV and VERY loud!

What’s your favorite team and player?

My favorite team is Leicester Tigers. They’re not my local team but I’ve been to watch them at least five times. My favorite player is Manu Tuilagi.

Favourite Rugby World Cup facts?

Wembley Stadium can almost hold the entire population of Tonga. There are 103,000 people in Tonga, Wembley can hold 90,000.
