June Rugby Blog - Photo of the Month

Woodboys Rugby World Cup by Florian Lebail  

Woodboys Rugby World Cup by Florian Lebail.

Thanks to everyone who participated in the our Rugby Blog during the Festival.  There were so many great entries of Aucklanders playing rugby at all levels in their schools and club teams by so many great Auckland amateur photographers.  You all worked hard and it was difficult to choose a best performer so Woodboy was the winner on the day.  But Woodboy, the globe is the wrong shape!  For July send in your photos here.
