58 years of history in the making - my fan-girl moment!!

I had a total fan-girl moment today.  On Saturday the Counties-Manukau Steelers (the rugby team for the province our school is part of) won the Ranfurly Shield.  Now bear with me, as I'm not by any stretch of the imagination an expert on the subject!  But from what I've learnt over the past two days, the Ranfurly shield is up for grabs when the holders of it have a home game.  In the 58 year history of the shield, Counties-Manukau has NEVER won it.  So already there is history in the making!  My fan-girl moment wasn't with a team I hardly know though.
No - My fan-girl moment was when Tana Umaga was there!! Ahhh he is an All Black.  Actually he's retired now, so he WAS an All Black.  He's pretty awesome.  Rugby players really are the celebrities of New Zealand.

I'll try and be more reserved in my next post - where I will tell ya what's in store for this week.
