Rugby

你的位置

民间队伍和国际超级联队尽皆参与的橄榄球运动是新西兰体育产业的支柱,新西兰人无不为之自豪而热情万丈。

Rising from cities, small towns and country paddocks, no part of New Zealand’s landscape is quite complete without a set of Rugby goal posts. There are signs of the sport at every corner, whether it’s a young boy perfecting his kick at the park or a proud supporter wearing his team’s shirt to the mall, you can’t help but be captivated by the game.

Rugby was introduced to New Zealand in 1870 by Charles Monro. Born near Nelson, Monro studied in England before returning home. He introduced the game to friends in Nelson, which lead to the first rugby game being played at Botanical Reserve, Nelson (a sign now stands on the ground to commemorate the game).

 
Today, rugby is part of Kiwi culture, with four major events dominating our annual sporting calendar. You can hear the mighty Haka echo throughout stadiums as the All Blacks take on our sporting rivals in the Tri Nations and Bledisloe Cup competitions. Locally, regional teams battle it out for the title of national rugby champions in the Super 15 and ITM Cup competitions.
