New Zealand Has Its Own Team Talk!

New Zealand Has Its Own Team Talk!

On 12th September, All Blacks Tours will release two Rugby World Cup 2015 special fan flights to the UK hosted by some very familiar faces that know all about the hype around this extraordinary Tournament.

The winning coach of Rugby World Cup 2011 Sir Graham Henry, and hero of the RWC 2011 Final, Stephen Donald, will be accompanying Kiwi fans on Official All Blacks Tours to Rugby World Cup 2015.

Henry will be there with fans for a 19-- night All Finals package, and Donald will take fans over for a 12--night package, which includes the semi--finals and the Final.

Donald, who is All Blacks Tours RWC 2015 Ambassador, and Henry know more than anyone what it’s like to be there, and both are very excited at the prospect of enjoying it all again, but as a supporter.

Donald, who is currently playing rugby in Japan, said he wouldn’t miss this Tournament for anything “Its something that every New Zealanders dreams of going to, and to have the opportunity to head along, on a Special Fan Flight with fellow rugby fanatics will be a trip of a lifetime” These two exclusive All Blacks Tours packages vary slightly, but both include a special fan flight to England, good quality accommodation, 2 Official All Blacks supporter functions, Official All Blacks Tours merchandise, return match transfers, airport transfers and a London hop--on hop--off sightseeing pass.

David Caldwell, General Manager at All Blacks Tours says, “With limited spots available and the phenomenal amount of interest in RWC 2015, these packages are forecast to sell as quickly as the Chicago Chartered Fan Flight which sold out in just 6 days."

All Blacks Fans can register their interest now ahead of next week launch, by visiting or by calling the All Blacks Tours team on 0800 81 2011.
