Well, the day has come for the start of the Rugby World Cup. Last night on Close Up, our current affairs programme, we saw a contingent of French Supporters who were hiring a fleet of camper vans to follow the French team around.
We also saw and heard the choir that will sing all the anthems and they were singing what was described as one of the more difficult ones - the WELSH anthem.
We will watch the opening ceremony and I will follow some of the games (or results anyway). One of my cousins has said that he expects me to be supporting Wales! I tend to sway between New Zealand and Wales.
There are two games here in Whangarei but I am not sure which teams are playing which shows how much I follow Rugby.
