A quiz series geared at testing your rugby knowledge while having some fun with family and friends.
The SPORTS INSIGHT Quiz is a virtual event, which will be hosted on the Zoom App, ticking all the above-mentioned boxes and will be sure to test your rugby knowledge.
So, get the family or your mates together for an exciting evening as we look to build some excitement for the highly anticipated Test series between the Springboks and the British & Irish Lions.
Along with this amazing quiz, rugby fans will also be treated to a talk show, aptly named ‘On the Couch’ with a former Bok (Robbi Kempson, Krynauw Otto & Braam van Straaten) and former Wales prop Rhys Thomas. They will discuss the latest news surrounding the tour as well as provide some expert insight.
The quiz master, Larry Benjamin has organised in excess of 2 000 quizzes well over a decade, 13 years to be exact. The virtual event will be hosted on the Zoom-platform.
The SPORTS INSIGHT Quiz will consist of six quiz nights/rounds during the British & Irish Lions Tour. Two quizzes per week, over three weeks, will focus on creating the vibe and energy needed in the build-up to the Test matches.
The first quiz of the week, on Tuesdays, will be open for school children (19 years and younger) to test their rugby knowledge. The Wednesday edition of the SPORTS INSIGHT Quiz will be open for all rugby boffins, experts, pundits, fans, friends, media, and corporates who are hoping to create a buzz as the tension builds toward the three Saturday Test matches.
The set of questions will differ for each quiz meaning rugby fanatics from across the globe can test their knowledge and finally put to bed the question ‘who is the greatest rugby mind in our friendship circle’.
