John Eales Inspires Infinity Rugby World Cup Experts

Recently former Wallabies captain John Eales visited the Infinity Holidays head office  in Brisbane to share his experiences of past Rugby World Cup's with Infinity and Flight Centre RWC experts.

Recently former Wallabies captain John Eales visited the Infinity Holidays head office  in Brisbane to share his experiences of past Rugby World Cup’s with Infinity and Flight Centre RWC experts.

During his time with the group Eales exhibited his down to earth manner when answering questions about Rugby World Cup and rugby in general. He inspired the RWC experts that were gathered to hear him speak and had them salivating about  the upcoming tournament in the UK.

The first thing you notice about John Eales is his height, he is a huge 2 metres (6’7″) tall. The second, as you shake his hand, is how modest and approachable he seems (an impression that is borne out over the next half hour). The third is how he looks exactly the same as he did when he was captaining the Wallabies in his late twenties. So he’s got the looks, talent,  money, influence, reputation and he’s a nice guy!

Things are really starting to heat up for the Rugby World Cup with Uruguay beating Russia to claim the final available spot in the tournament and the pools are now locked in. 5th ranked Australia will not have an easy run to the final, sharing their pool with both England (ranked 3rd) and Wales (ranked 6th).

Flight Centre Brand along with Travel Associates and FCm are an official RWC Travel Agent and with the catchcry ‘Rugby Means The World To Us’ sales have exceeded expectations with tickets to the big games selling out fast. Infinity Holidays has ready-made tour packages to complement World Cup matches and a vast array of product to help make any fan’s World Cup experience truly amazing.

On the subject of who will win the Rugby World Cup, Eales is of the opinion that New Zealand is definitely the team to beat but there are about four plus teams that could beat New Zealand on the day if they lifted and played their best. Among the teams he named were England, South Africa, Ireland and Australia. Argentina is also a dark horse and while they may not win the tournament they could potentially upset a few teams finals hopes.

What came through loud and clear in Eales modest words is that the Rugby World Cup is a huge global event that lifts the players to new levels that rugby fans will not experience anywhere else. There will be guts, glory and no doubt some controversy. There will be events both on and off the field which will engender legends, and stories which will become part of national folklore.
