RWC: Tonga Visit Nando’s 10 Days In A Row
Latest posts by Jason Hennessy (see all)
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.
