Wellington Legends @ the Local

Wellington Football Club is one of the oldest and most prestigious rugby clubs in New Zealand. If the walls could talk they would probably give you the run down of each piece of memorabilia lining their ample walls, which looks like it could rival the rugby museum in Palmerston North.

Our panel of Legends consists of All Blacks Murray Mexted, John Schwalger, David Holwell along with MC and NZ sports broadcasting legend Keith Quinn. We’re humbled to have ex-Welsh player John Davies on our panel too! Feel free to ask questions as they discuss the importance of the Lions tour, the local rugby scene and the progression of our great game. There will also be a game of epic proportions where the ‘Mini Lions’ take on the ‘Mini All Blacks’ in what will arguably be the match of tour!

You will be greeted from 12.00pm with lunch being served from 12.30. The Panel will begin at 2.00pm and finish at 2.45pm. The bar will be open until late so feel free to stay and chat with the Legends.

What a great way to spend the day before a test! We’ll see you in the sheds for a few cold ones.
