Parad­ing league cup

Auckland City Harbour News - - News -

The Rugby League World Cup will join the cel­e­bra­tions at the Auck­land Farm­ers Santa Pa­rade on Sun­day.

The tro­phy, won by the Ki­wis in Satur­day’s his­toric win, will be based at the New Zealand Rugby League Mu­seum at NZRL head­quar­ters in Pen­rose.

But gen­eral man­ager Peter Cordtz says there are plans to tour the cup around the coun­try so as many New Zealan­ders as pos­si­ble can see it. He says tour­ing the cup works in well with ju­nior de­vel­op­ment pro­grammes the NZRL plans on in­tro­duc­ing next year. As well as hav­ing the tro­phy on dis­play at the mu­seum, it will be at the pa­rade on Sun­day.

The mu­seum at 7 Beasley Ave, Pen­rose, is open Mon­day, Wed­nes­day and Fri­day from 11am to 3pm by ap­point­ment.
