24 – 30 Sept ’11
I’ve had the tickets for the two local Rugby World Cup games for months. I didn’t want to miss out on being involved in this fantastic international tournament. Who knows if we’ll ever see it back here in NZ again.
Georgia is playing two pool games in Palmy, so we decided we’d adopt them. Red and white is the order of the day. Mum’s knitted us all a beanie, we have tee shirts printed by a local businessman and home made flags.
It seemed like the whole town had come out to party. All the locals had picked a side, the split seemed fairly even between yellow for Romania and red for Georgia. Again the 50mm is great for getting shots of the crowd.
It seemed every second person had a camera.
The FMG Stadium is small, so we had a great view of the field.
And my favourite supporter…
