Not 100m from a sign at
Nelson College commemorating Nelsons
spot as the birthplace of Rugby in New Zealand was a rugby fixture this afternoon.
And yes, there are two teams here,
Even though its very difficult to tell Nelson College boys
from Christchurch Boys High,
that was who was playing today 14th July 2011.
bit muddy huh?
and probably not the warmest
game of rugby
these lads have
ever played I bet.
They were giving it “their all”
and eagerly supported by the
crowd on the embankments
Youngsters from the nearby Hampden St Primary School were enjoying the day too.
Oh and the result after a close match was Nelson 13 Christchurch 10.
A photo of a mud covered rugby player made the front page of the paper Friday too (unfortunately not one of mine though) and had an accompanying story.
