When Wellington second row Shane Jordan bought a new pair of Adidas boots recently he never thought it would lead to meeting the All Blacks rugby team.
Shane had automatically been entered into a draw, the first prize being to spend a day hanging out with the current rugby world champions. And he won.
Out of the blue Shane was told that he and a friend would be travelling to London by train, met at Kings Cross Railway Station by a Limousine and taken to the Tower Bridge Hotel, where the All Blacks are based and spend the day with them staying overnight before travelling home the next day.
Shane and his mate Will Brewer, ex Wellington scrum-half, mixed with the New Zealand players as they relaxed, playing video games and racing against them on Formula one simulators which had been brought in especially for the team.
Shane said ‘It was a great day, we were really well looked after, and they were a really nice bunch of guys’
