Well now to the business end of the Rugby World Cup. Leaving Napier

early this morning we flew down to Wellington arriving at 11:00 am.

Then the day really took off, we had been invited (by New Zealand

Business club) to a lunch with rugby legends, the lunch was superb

(both food, drink and location), however being entertained by Francois

Pienaar and John Kirwin was a real winner. Both men entertaining the

group with stories of rugby and prediction for this years event.

Finishing at 4:00 pm we had and hour to kill before the next event, a

drinks party with Bill English, The New Zealand Deputy Prime Minister

(not sure how we managed that but hey ho a great event).

After that a short visit to the Welsh Bar in town and now for a nice

lie in in the morning.

The city is starting to buzz for both Quarter Finals this week end and

regardless of the result( well almost) everyone will have a great

time.

Tomorrow we are off sailing (again at the courtesy of the Business club)
