Bledisloe Cup waterfront parade

All Blacks vs Australia, 24/08/13

Bledisloe Cup waterfront parade 2013We had a brilliant time down on the waterfront before the Bledisloe Cup game. We were invited to lead the fans from Queen’s Wharf along the waterfront to the stadium, Pied Piper style – a bit like what we did for the World Cup games.

After sending a few drummers off to various parts of the fan trail to drum up support, we gathered under the sails for a short impromptu gig-ette, and then headed off down the waterfront with a large contingent of fans following along behind. Once at the Stadium we played a few more numbers for the fans heading along the walkway to the game, then most of us headed back along the waterfront to find somewhere good to watch the game – pausing for a quick jam with our friends Niko Ne Zna on the way.

The All Blacks won the game handily, with two tries to Australia’s one, and a final score of 27-16. Go the ABs!
