Celebrating the Best
As you may have guessed - I love rugby. So when I was asked to MC the Wellington Rugby Awards I took it pretty seriously. Seriously enough to get into a suit!
There had been a bit of bad press for Wellington Rugby (and rugby in general) in the lead up to the awards so it was really nice to celebrate the positive in Wellington Rugby- from the grassroots coaches all the way to the top of the region's mens' and womens' game.
It was a nice balance between the relaxed (I think I got heckled for making an Aaron Smith joke) and the formal and there was a feeling of family coming together to celebrate their own in a season that, results wise, started fantastically but didn't quite live up to its start by the end.
