IMG 1684i - Fiji Rugby Team at Hampton Court

Fiji Rugby Team at Hampton Court

Today I was at Hampton Court – and luckily the Fiji World Cup Rugby Team were there too! 🙂
Here are some of the pictures I took of the official welcoming ceremony:

After the initial photoshoot the coach moved off-site and the rugby players went for a luncheon buffet and a presentation ceremony in the palace’s Tiltyard restaurant.


A second photo opportunity followed later in the afternoon, and TV and news reporters were on hand to interview the various rugby players, captains, etc.

The World Cup does not begin for another week, in the meantime its all photo opportunities, preparation, and training ready for the major rugby tournaments at Twickenham.
