I am not a rugby fan, but I am a New Zealand fan.
And three cheers to the All Blacks for winning the World Cup, at home!!
Finally. Despite being perennial favourites every year, they have not won the cup since the last time NZ hosted, which was the first World Cup, in 1987.
This poor battered country needs something to cheer about after the devastation of the earthquakes and oil spills. Not that this win will really change things, but it does give a boost to a nation that needs some happy news.
Party on NZ!
