As I crawl my way back into Daniel Defoe after a 22-hour coach journey that spanned 5 countries- my head shaven, my voice ruined, €700-poorer and my pink, zebra-print thong riding up my arse, only one thought runs through my mind, ‘I f**king love tour!’
However much I never want to see a Bacardi Breezer again, I can’t deny that it’s been an incredibly fun week. There’s been drinking, wrestling, drinking, dancing, drinking, pizza, drinking, damage costs and of course, drinking.
It’s been a hell of a scatty week to say the least, I just wish it could’ve gone on for longer. I’ve enjoyed every minute of my time on tour, and spending it with some of the loosest people I know definitely made it 10x better.
I can only speak from my own perspective, and only as a rugby fresher on tour. I can’t say too much as ‘what goes on tour stays on tour’, and I’d hate to ruin the experience for anyone else who will be in my position next year. The looming threat of being intoxicated for 5 days straight is enough to put someone off, but all I’ll say is, it is 100% worth it!
The last few days have been a perfect way for me to end my first year at Greenwich, and I’m glad I could spend it with some of, who I now believe to be, my closest friends.
Thank you to everyone who made my first tour so f**king wild, and I can’t wait to hit it harder than ever next year!
I suppose there’s only one thing left to say, ‘WOOOOOO!’
