Eden Rugby Club announces quarantine-free zone for Aussies
Every Aussie visitor to receive a free Jazz apple
Club prepared to drop 'strict standards' to welcome Aussies
In the interests of mending international relations prior to the launch of the Rugby World Cup, Eden Rugby Club is ready and willing to let the Aussies in and even prepared to give them some complimentary apples. It might be the only way they get to sample the best in the world.
"If we're having problems selling our apples across the ditch then maybe if they sample one at Eden Rugby Club (prior to the Australia v. Ireland match on 17 September) they'll apply some pressure back home," says Andrew Liell of Eden Rugby Club. "We're open for pre-match and during-match entertainment on the 17th and expecting a big crowd of folk in every hue of Irish green and Aussie gold," says Liell.
The Eden Rugby Club might well become the Garden of Eden and turn those Aussies onto our apples. "The Rugby World Cup gives us all the perfect opportunity to build friendships and mend fences, until we meet them in the Final!"
