This is the rugby world cup 2011 Thai style.
The Londoner pub was heaving with people. It was just like being in the stadium: there was a lot of noise, klaxons, whistles and lots of shouting at the big TV screen: "tackle them!" "heave" "Oh Johnny...not again."
Before, during half time and after the match, the Heineken beer ‘pretties’ (a regular part of selling here in Thailand) appeared to entertain us; well, probably not me… but there were promotions, quizzes and prizes of shirts and beer to be won. It was a good afternoon, particularly as we won... even if we played like turkeys quite a lot of the match.
