Show us your colours!12:13 PM on Tue 23 Aug 2011

Backpackers and locals around New Zealand are feeling the Buzz, and can't wait for the Rugby World Cup to begin. 

Tessa from Base Backpackers Taupo made the most of the 2011 Rugby World Cup Road show that was touring the country. The  Roadshow rolled into Taupo early on a monday morning, waking up at 6.30am and braving the winter Chill was a challenge.

My objective for the day was to get in and have my Photo taken with the Webb Ellis Cup (Mission Accomplished)  Countries from all over the world will fight to the death to hold this. The Highlight of the morning was getting a glimpse of the hot rugby Hunk who also showed up to see the cup.  I also got to see the one and only, the LEGEND Sir Colin "pine tree" Meads, if you don't know who he is, where have you been? 

I must say, the turn out was HUGE!  Rugby Fans showed their support, dressing up from head to toe in their nations colours.

Who do you think will WIN, come watch the games LIVE with us.

Show us your Colours!!
