It was the birthplace of former PM Neville Chamberlain and antiques expert David Barby of BBC ‘Bargain Hunt’ fame. And if you didn’t already know, the town of Rugby is where the sport of the same name first originated
To celebrate the start of the Rugby World Cup this month, Marathonbet paid a visit to the Warwickshire town of Rugby to ask the locals how much they knew about the game that was born in their own back yard.
And the results? A concoction of impressive historical knowledge, vague recollections of a schoolboy who picked up his ball instead of kicking it, and downright ignorance. The finished video, which is available for you to share, promises side-clenching laughter and an informative look at the history of the game that’s about to grace our fine shores.
PR Manager of Marathonbet had this to say about the rugby video: “With a big focus on rugby in the UK this year, we were curiously drawn to the town to check out the locals’ knowledge.”
