100% Pure New Zealand

(Richie McCaw holding the Bledisloe cup aloft

I am at home for the weekend eating chocolate and watching a slightly dodgy copy of Eagle Eye while J is on route to Hongkong and the Bledisloe cup.
New Zealand has already won the cup, after beating the Wallabies in two out of three games, but as in all games between such intense rugby rivals there will undoubtedly be fire, passion and atmosphere. The last game was close, nail bitingly close, and tomorrow night's (Hongkong time) match is sold out. The All Blacks and the Wallabies legendary rivalry is almost a century old and this is the first time the teams have fought for the cup on Asian soil.
If I am beginning to sound a bit like the green eyed monster is sitting on my shoulder it's because I am and she is. I am on the New Zealand organising committee for the schools International Day; food, a themed and decorated booth and a performance, and I havent been 'home' for nearly two years.
Here's what I am up against

Now all I have to do is work out how I am going to be able to watch it on the day without tearing up every 5 minutes!
