One of the heroes of the last Rugby World Cup – former All Blacks first five Stephen Donald – is stepping up once again, this time as the All Blacks Tours Rugby World Cup 2015 Ambassador.
Donald knows more than anyone that you can’t beat being there. “Everyone knows my story – one minute I was white baiting, the next minute I took THAT phone call from Ted saying he needed me at Rugby World Cup 2011. It was one of the most amazing experiences of my life.
“My advice to All Blacks fans is not to leave it to the last minute. This is going to be an incredible Tournament and the boys will be fired up to go back to back so they will be wanting as many Kiwis as possible, in the stands in black cheering them on.
“Your support will mean everything to the team when they are so far from home. I remember on tour looking around and seeing those black jerseys, it really makes a difference.”
