#1713 ... The party starts
The annual Wellington rugby sevens tournament kicked off today with a welcome parade for the 16 teams competing. Floats and cheerleaders moved through the city at mid-day with the same enthusiasm which will be mirrored by the crowds over the weekend. The rugby could come in at third place once punters are dressed up and have had a few drinks. Wellington weather can be dire at the best of times but the MetService promising the rain will stay away.
