There is something about a British & Irish Lions rugby tour. In an age when more and more sport gets crammed into the calendar, Lions tours remain the same; once every four years, rotating around the Southern Hemisphere nations.
We always knew the series was going to be good, but Brisbane exceeded expectations. End to end rugby, four of the best winger’s tries you could hope to see, and a result that went down to the last minute.
But the Wallabies are not out of this. But for some poor goal kicking they would have own in Brisbane, and they came back from a similar setback in 2001.
So it’s all hand to the pump; psychological warfare can come in all forms. So why not put up a suggestive sign that everyone can get to see?
The sign is in place now and is visible to passengers sitting on the left hand side of planes as they land in Melbourne. This includes players from both sides who flew into Melbourne following that Test in Brisbane last Saturday night.
From the Fact Department
World Record Number 1 – “largest painting”.
The painting is 170m wide by 90m tall, or 15,030 square metres. The previous best is 11,965.7 square metres, achieved by the Turkish Ministry of Youth and Sports in Istanbul on 17 May 2013.
World Record Number 2 – “largest hashtag”.
The hashtag is 71 metres wide by 8 metres tall, or 568 square metres. It is more than double the size of the previous best.
The previous best is on an airship, with the hashtag measuring 128 feet by 22 feet. This equates to 39 metres by 6.7 metres, or 261.3 square metres. This was achieved by Airship Ventures, owners of the airship Eureka, in San Francisco on 17 July 2012.
2,500 litres of non-toxic paint was used.
Approximately one-million people will fly over the image in the next month.
Here is how it was done.
