Springbok Rugby in PE

We got to experience an awesome event on August 20th. Springbok Ruby in PE! In South Africa they have a professional rugby league much like the NFL and from those teams they select an "all star team". This team makes up the National team called the Springboks. This is the team that will play in the World Cup but also plays in other tournaments each year, like the Tri-Nations. This tournament is played against Australia and New Zealand. One of the Tri Nations games was played here in PE this year. A huge event here in town and it was awesome!! The town was alive with a great hometown pride. New Zealand is a very good team and we won the game!! Wow! What a day!!! Below are two links with more info on the rugby, if anyone is interested.

Go Bokkes!!
