Springboks & Wallabies Clash At London Hotel


South Africa & Australia ended up sharing the same hotel in London this week after a booking blunder.

The double booking at the Lensbury Hotel, in Teddington, stemmed from the Australians being checked in by World Rugby, while the Springboks were inadvertently put there by the Barbarians organisation.

The booking ended up disrupting both teams preparations with gym and training field sessions having to be changed with both teams needing access the facilities as they prepared for their November internationals.


The Wallabies take on Wales this Saturday with the Springboks taking on the Barbarians, thankfully they haven’t double booked the stadiums with games taking place at the Principality Stadium and Wembley respectively.
