Dan, Congrats to your Country's Rugby Team on winning the World Cup of Rugby. Our National news media is reporting that they are from Auckland, your home town. Is that true? Did you go to the celebration there?

The team is made up from the countries top players ..representative from teams throughout the country ....but the game was played in Auckland.
2 min after the match ended I went outside and looked out over the city.
There were fireworks and people yelling and screaming in jubilation ...all across the city... greater than any New Year celebration.
This competition is held every 4 years. the next venue will be England.
The New Zealand team has been prevented from progressing in previos World Cups. Twice by France and Once by Austrailia.
This year we thrashed Austrailia and Beat France comprehensively in the first round of pool play, and then beat France again in the final.
there were no points scored in the last 30 min of play. Final score was 9 to 8.
I used up a whole weeks worth of Cardiac Medication in that last 30 minutes.
Go The All Blacks !!
Old Hunters never die.They just sit around the campfire and tell the biggest lies.
