Wolf Blass Wine name Rugby World Cup #WinningLineUp

November 2, 2015 Laura Caldwell 1 Comment

The Rugby World Cup may be over for another while, but as New Zealand celebrate, Wolf Blass wine have created their own #WinningLineUp worth shouting about.

As Rugby World Cup fever swept across Northern Ireland (albeit for a short while), Wolf Blass wine teamed up with England player Will Greenwood and you, the public to help create the world’s finest ever rugby union team. Through limited edition Rugby bottles with 15 different labels to choose from (each label depicting a position in a rugby team) Wolf Blass called for consumers to name the world’s finest players online via social media at @WolfBlassWines.

“My winning line-up features the finest quality players from all over the world and has been a working process for many years, including people I have been lucky enough to play alongside as well as people I have admired for years. Being such an intense and high impact sport, the right balance of skill and determination is essential, and my list reflects this ‘Best Of Rugby’ perfectly.” – Will Greenwood

Without further ado, here it is, the world’s finest rugby team as voted by you:
