Suretank Sponsor Norwegian Rugby update



With the Rugby World Cup at the front of most rugby players and enthusiast’s minds world-wide,   Suretank’s involvement in Norwegian rugby continues as Norway men’s team prepares for their division 2 championship against Bulgaria this Saturday.

Lars Thorkildsen (pictured above), both a student of the game and at only 17 years of age still at school, could have a historical moment if introduced from the bench against Bulgaria.  If this happens Lars will become the youngest player in 180 years to play European Nations Cup Rugby.  Norway’s home game in Bergen in May was won comfortably 43-0 but a much improved Bulgarian performance is expected, especially as they are playing on home turf. 

Philip Murphy, Director of Customer Care at Suretank had this to say about the game "Suretank is very proud to be involved in Norwegian rugby.  It would be a fantastic achievement for Lars if he gets to play on Saturday.  Everyone at Suretank will be rooting for him and cheering the whole team on."

After this International,  in the true spirit of the game of rugby, both squads will be hurrying their way down to the banquet hall to catch up on the day’s world cup results and on this occasion to watch, a battle between two giants, England V’s Australia while eating dinner and socialising together. 

The World Cup is a fantastic 6 week event, but the game itself is much bigger.  Evolving through a player’s life from the minis -- juniors – seniors and more often than not for a lot of us the old boy and old girl teams.  With this being said, Suretank’s sponsorship recently assisted Bergen to host the Norway A – Bergen senior men’s game in Bergen, at which I had the honour of participating in for the Bergen team, a tough game, with many days needed for recuperation.  The mini’s and juniors also got to play and a very successful and enjoyable day was had by all (pictured below).
