RWC2015 – Are you more Rule Britannia than Kia Kaha Aotearoa?
Rugby World Cup 2015 is finally upon us, but which team are you supporting?
As a British ex-pat in New Zealand, does your heart still beat for the home nations, or is your sporting wardrobe all black?
Do you feel a surge of nostalgia when you see Twickenham packed to the rafters, and hear the beautiful chords of “I vow to thee, my country”? Or is it the haka these days that sets your spine tingling?
If you’re still not quite sure where your loyalties lie, perhaps you should consider this fact: New Zealand have never reached a Rugby World Cup final in the northern hemisphere, and nobody has ever successfully defended the Web Ellis Cup.
