Obligatory Rugby World Cup Post

New Zealand’s All Blacks have just won the Rugby World Cup for the third time (1987, 2011, 2015).  One of their greatest fans is also someone who they have been using as a motivational speaker for some years. He is our own Cpl Willie Apiata, VC. I like to think that his quiet humility in public has had a real influence on the way that the current All Blacks deal with both success and failure.  I am always a proud New Zealander, but at the moment I am feeling especially proud that our land has produced such fine sons.

What better use for the Webb Ellis trophy than to chug a beer from.

New Zealanders love a sing along.
