Rugby World Cup build-up: Our favourite Vines from the #RWC2015 hashtag

Can’t wait for the start of RWC 2015? Neither can we – we’re right in the thick of it, with a fanzone down the road, a clutch of sports pubs in the neighbourhood (including our own bar The Nook) and great transport links to all the London and southeast venues.

If you’re anything like us, you’ll be looking for anything to feed your excitement. There’s plenty to watch on the Rugby World Cup Youtube channel, but we’re also loving some of the short, sharp clips on Vine

  1. These girls doing the haka

(The haka is a traditional Maori war dance that New Zealand’s All Blacks perform before matches. Here’s how the real thing looks…)

    1. This England fan’s moves

  1. This superfan living room

…if you need to stock up on merchandise yourself, there’s an official Rugby World Cup 2015 pop-up shop in Covent Garden Market, just a few minutes from us.

    1. This important tip on ball care

  1. And finally, Alistair Cook dropping the ball

…the cricketer may have led England to Ashes victory, but there’s unlikely to be a rugby call-up anytime soon.
