NZ wins Parliamentary Rugby World Cup

Adam Bennett at NZ Herald reports:

New Zealand has crushed Argentina to win the World Cup – the Parliamentary World Cup that is.

The New Zealand team made up of MPs, political advisers and guest players including an ex-All Black made a strong start and won “about 40-nil” in the final played in Auckland according to captain and National MP for Napier Chris Tremain.

“We played well, we had a good team on the paddock. We scored well in the first quarter.”

Stand out players for New Zealand included National MP for Maungakiekie Sam Lotu-liga who scored a “superb” try from a short lineout.

Congratulations to the team. NZ has now won the parliamentary title four out of five times. The team does a great job raising money for charity as well as giving people the chance to ruck an MP 🙂
