Rugby fever at New Zealand HC

23 September 2019

Mr Mike Burrell, High Commissioner of New Zealand in South Africa hosted fans at his official residence to view the Rugby World Cup game between the All Blacks and Springboks on Saturday, 21 September 2019.

It was an exciting game, especially for the All Black supporters and the general consensus from the very passionate fans was that the probability was high for these two teams to meet in the final.

The Rugby World Cup is taking place in Japan and runs from 20 September to 2 November. The tournament is contested every four years and was first held in 1987, co-hosted by New Zealand and Australia.
