Investec Rugby - England v New Zealand

Twickenham, 21st November 2009

England 6 - 19 New Zealand

The final clash of the Autumn Rugby Internationals saw Martin Johnson's England welcome the All Blacks to Twickenham for what was sure to be an electrifying England v New Zealand match between these two rugby heavyweights. Having lost to Australia but beaten Argentina in their previous autumn internationals, England were looking to finish the test series with a victory over the most feared opposition in world rugby.

The entertainment at the England v New Zealand Hospitality facility got underway with a champagne reception as guests arrived at the corporate hospitality suite. The mood was buoyant among the fans, and with the Kiwis in town it added extra spice to the occasion. With a fully stocked complimentary bar available throughout the day, guests could soak up the atmosphere in style before enjoying their sumptuous four course lunch. Ex-England Captain and British & Irish Lions favourite Peter Wheeler was the guest speaker prior to the game, giving guests an insight into the emotions in the England dressing room before a big match.

With RFU allocated England v New Zealand match tickets in the west stand, clients were given the ideal panoramic view of all the action on the Twickenham pitch. The infamous haka was performed by the All Blacks before Jonny Wilkinson got England underway on their home turf. The match was billed as the battle of the fly-half's, pitching Jonny Wilkinson against the eminent Dan Carter.

It was advantage England in the early stages; Jonny on the spot converting two penalties after a period of sustained England pressure. New Zealand struck back almost immediately with penalties of their own, bringing the teams into the break level at 6-6.

Carter's early in the second period meant the New Zealand fly-half surpassed Andrew Mehrtens's previous record, becoming the all time leading point scorer for the All Blacks. The unrelenting pressure on England showed why New Zealand are a truly world class side, as Richie McCaw and Sivivatu combined expertly to work scrum-half, Jimmy Cowan, over in the left-hand corner. Carter converted, leaving a bruised a battered England to mull over another defeat as the All Blacks celebrated winning the England vs New Zealand match and the Hillary Shield at Twickenham.

When the clients returned to the corporate hospitality facility, spirits were still high after the fantastic spectacle on the pitch.

The eagerly awaited post match gourmet buffet was served as pommes and kiwis alike discussed the finer points of the game well into the evening.

Our corporate hospitality packages at Twickenham remain as popular as ever, with guests enjoying the first class entertainment on offer in our luxurious officially approved facility.
