“I was on holiday in a small village in France and we suddenly found out our home team The Reds was playing in the Rugby Super 14 Final in Brisbane. It was lunchtime and we persuaded the owner of the local pub to turn on the television. The match was a cliff hanger, but the right team won. At that moment the phone rang and it was our son in New York where it was 4am, and he too was watching the game in a New York bar full of Australians. At the same time texts were coming through from Brisbane where almost everyone we knew was actually at Suncorp stadium watching the most exciting game of the year. It showed me the power sport can have to make people feel connected around the world.”
