RWC 2011 Roadshow in Whangarei
Whāngārei painted it red this morning.
Hundreds of people turned out, many in red costumes and face-painted faces to support the three teams they will be hosting - Tonga, Canada and Japan. The best-dressed fans and match ticket winners were Rosemary and her 11-week-old son David who was dressed as a Canadian Rugby ball and 10-year-old Boston who dressed as a Canadian fan complete with maple-leaf hat. We continue our trip north tomorrow to Paihia in the Bay of Islands and onto Kaitāia on Friday. If you’re in Northland we’d love to see you, this is your chance to get your photo taken with the Webb Ellis Cup and maybe even win match tickets!
