May 1st, a beautiful sunny and warm spring day in Lisbon, Portugal, welcomed close to 1500 amateur athletes for their first day at the UN’s 46th Inter-Agency Games.
The Portuguese Prime Minister, António Costa, took a long stroll at the Portugal Rugby Youth Festival and stated he places great importance on the spirit of rugby.
Fundamentally, the Portugal Rugby Youth Festival is the ability to make 28 151 people happy in an area of 100 thousand square meters, for 48 hours and 300 games of great excitement.
There should be nothing about rugby that impressed Lewis Moody. The English international and Lion has been in all the rugby world's fields, in all the world's changing rooms in many of the great moments of the game and, like the warrior he was and is, he is not a man to be impressed.
