A number of Springboks and coaching staff cracked the nod for a reception at Buckingham Palace hosted by none other than her Majesty The Queen of England herself... One appeared to be rather amused, the Queen was also pretty stoked to have the boys around at her crib too...
As Prince Harry addressed the congregation, he said "It has been one of the most competitive and entertaining World Cups ever... This evening, we would like to thank all of you for making England 2015 such a successful and enjoyable tournament for everybody...You are helping inspire children of all backgrounds to get involved with the game, the game we all love." Is it just me or do some of the okes standing behind Harry look like they're kaking themselves a bit? Like they're standing there like stoute kabouters and Harry is about to make an example of them or something?Anyway, Springbok Bryan Habana got on to the royal selfie cam, (yes, can you believe it, they have a Royal Selfie Cam... don't knock it, you know deep down inside you want to be on the Royal Selfie Cam haha) Check out Bryan's debut Royal Selfie Cam Sesh...nice one Bryan
Victor Matfield aka One, said it was fantastic to be inside the palace. "I've been here a few times, but outside the gate, taking pics of the guards outside the gate," he said. "Being in here is just fantastic. I met the queen quickly, had a nice chat with Prince Harry." Here's Vic's debut Royal Selfie Cam in silent movie gif formatfield... so you can get the full effect of waving locks ofcourse... because he's worth it 🙂 Nice one Vic!

Your Blogger-In-Chief, Proud Springbok and Sharks Supporter.. If I could sum myself up in one quote, I believe Steve Jobs said it best… “Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes, the ones who see things differently,they’re not fond of rules. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.” Connect with me via:
