Are you a rugby fan? It seems Noosa has been hit with Rugby fever – the Noosa International 7’s Festival is on this weekend with over 60 games which I just find incredible and to kick off a full weekend of rugby, a very exciting announcement was made today that the British & Irish Lions who are touring Australia in 2013 are heading to Noosa!

In fact they will be spending a week in Noosa for their official Training & Recovery Week in June/July. This involves training for 3 days at the Noosa Dolphins Rugby Club in Sunshine Beach and 2 days of Rest and Relaxation.

We are pretty sure they will be out and about enjoying all things Noosa, enjoying our gorgeous beaches and I reckon a surfing lesson is definitely in order for the team!

If you know anything about rugby, you probably know that the British Lions have a massively huge following and apparently their tour attracts about 25 000 fans that travel around the world following them – this is great news for Noosa and the Sunshine Coast!

I am pretty sure my mates will be excited with this news – no doubt Noosa locals will become popular with friends and family wanting to visit at this time to see the Lions in action.

Between now and then, I had better catch up on my rugby, starting this weekend with the 7’s!
