As we saw in Cape Town, its winter down south with pretty chilly conditions for rugby being seen at Newlands, as well as Canberra and Dunedin recently. The good news for those of you up north is, its summertime.
O2 are once again putting on their Scrum on the Beach festival, which is essentially a big rugby beach party where you can have a crack at playing rugby in the sand, amongst other things.
There are plenty of prizes, giveaways, and youll stand a chance of playing with some of Englands stars. Test your skills in the O2 Play Zone, compete on Batak Duel competition stations, pick up rugby freebies, have a beer, eat ice cream, and grab some autographs.
England players will be on the lookout for the teams with the most flair, and if youre chosen, youll get to play at Twickenham in a tournament.
