Domino’s Pizza in Pontyclun were delighted to welcome Wales Rugby Captain, Ryan Jones to the brand new store last night as part of the outlet’s grand opening celebrations.
The international rugby player cut the ribbon to declare the store officially open. The Osprey star really got into the spirit of things, donning a Domino’s Pizza uniform complete with apron, hat and name badge.
Under the watchful eye of the new staff at Domino’s Pizza Pontyclun, Ryan got down to the important business of pizza making. Despite admitting he hadn’t made a pizza since cooking classes at school, with store franchisee Tej Randeva on hand to offer pizza making tips, the rugby star managed to create his own Domino’s pizza from scratch.
When asked what would be his idea of pizza heaven, Ryan admitted he’s a fan of “spicy and meaty” pizzas, but his pizza hell would be a plain cheese and tomato topped pizza which the Wales skipper thinks is “just a waste of a good pizza!”
The rugby ace handled the pressure in the kitchen with ease, but later admitted he’s a keen chef at home and often cooks up Sunday roasts and barbeques in the summer for friends and family.
One lucky Domino’s Pizza customer had the unexpected privilege of having their pizza order hand delivered by Ryan Jones in the Domino’s Ferrari. After trying his hand as a pizza delivery man, I asked Ryan if he could have anyone deliver him a pizza, who would it be? “Cheryl Cole” was the first answer, but after a bit more consideration the Osprey star revised his answer to Mongolian Emperor, “Ghenghis Khan” – can’t say I saw that one coming!
With the Autumn Internationals looming, the Domino’s Pizza store in Pontyclun were grateful the Wales captain was able to take time out to visit the outlet’s official opening. The 29-year-old sportsman says on a personal level, he’d love to beat the All Blacks in the upcoming season:
“I’ve played against the All Blacks in games where we’ve lost badly, and when we’ve come really close to beating them, so it would be nice to finally get that win over New Zealand and to make a bit of history”
