Tonga can credit their first World cup 2015 victory to their stable diet of Nando’s.
Apparently the Tongan LADS visited the same Nando’s restaurant 10 days in a row and some players went more than once a day.
Last visit from the Tonga Team before their match tomorrow! They visited everyday for the past 10 days, and feel like part of our family now!!! Good luck boys!!!! 😀 (Nando’s staff member)
The team’s kitchen staff needed a supermarket scramble for steaks after the squad consumed 22lbs of roast beef in 15 minutes.
The players need more than 5000 calories a day, with an allowance of bacon, pancakes, maple syrup, blueberries, strawberries and yoghurt on match days.
They also carry their own supply of hot sauce.
