In 2017, a man with a mission came to the NZ Rugby with a plan to save the Wellington Sevens. The King of Spin, and Partyboy fanatic has been employed by the NZ Rugby to help save the Wellington Sevens from impending doom and help relive the glory days.
Shane told Thai Castle, “I have connections with some of the biggest party people on the planet. I’ve been to parties all around the world and I know what it takes to get one started.
We may have to bounce some families at the gate as this will no longer be a family friendly event. In fact, if you have a shred of religion in you, I probably wouldn’t bother coming. A weekend of sin is sometimes just what the doctor ordered so here is my best effort with ideas to make this event what it used to be”
Wellington Mayor Justin Lester had this to say, “It’s the last roll of the dice for us, we have shot ourselves in the foot with regulation.
Shane has attended a few meetings with us recently for the Sevens thinktanks and, while he was hungover, and yes he smoked inside and, and there was a female waiting outside with a sex toy, all in all we are confident he has brought enough to the table to turn this thing around”.
