Rugby World Cup 2011...A Few Days Late

So, as many of you may know, these past 6 weeks in New Zealand have revolved around Rugby... The Rugby World Cup in fact. If you are unsure of what it is, it is a huge rugby competition that happens every four year, and this year New Zealand hosted it.

Now, I'm not really a follower of rugby {to be honest it confuses me sometimes}, but my family are, and L seems to love it too.

On Sunday, it was the final {which New Zealand was in for the 3rd time in 24 years}, so we decided to go out to the 'Fanzone' and watch it.

But first, we needed to get ourselves covered in temporary tattoos. L really enjoyed himself.

After we sorted out the tattoos, we headed into the city. We were super early, but the time went really quick, we had a look around at all the things they had to do, and there were bands playing on the stage.

The fanzone was set up really well, it was like a wee rugby field, and heaps of kiddos were kicking their rugby balls around with friends and parents.

And they also had this, a giant trophy {well, actually a giant Webb Ellis Cup - which is the cup/trophy the winners get}


Of course, the main event of the night was the rugby game, which was played on huge TV screens. It was a very tough game, but, after 24 years since the last time New Zealand won, the boys did it, which made a lot of people happy.

For someone who doesn't like rugby very much, I had a really good afternoon/night. It was made even better that it was a long weekend, so it didn't matter that we got home at 11:30pm

How was your weekend?
