Thorburn Protects the Rugby World Cup Trophy

08.11.2013

The World Cup trophy certainly sees its share of the world!  It remains in the country of the winning team for two years, after which it is sent on to the next hosting country for marketing purposes.

Thorburn was honoured to provide the official protection of the trophy on 28th October 2013, as it was taken for display to various points in Gauteng before being flown to England in the care of DHL who is the official logistical sponsor.  We were tasked to keep the trophy safe from its arrival at the airport, the journey to Ellis Park Stadium and to various other venues, up until its departure from OR Thambo.

Joost van der Westhuizen was present at the display ceremony at Ellis Park, along with Grant Fox from New Zealand who has escorted the trophy to the winning countries.  It started out in New Zealand after which it went to Australia and then South Africa.  Footage of this momentous occasion was aired on Supersport’s “Boots and All”.
