I see red, I see red, I see red.

This lyric popped into my head as I was watch­ing the All Blacks vs the Lions test match on Satur­day night.

I wasn’t an­gry, or watch­ing ‘‘my baby walk­ing down the street’’ but just in awe of the sea of red in the stands at Eden Park.

The Brits re­ally know how to sup­port and cel­e­brate their team. They don’t knock them when they fail to win but just en­joy all the good mo­ments.

I’m look­ing for­ward this week to see­ing lots of peo­ple dressed in red around the streets of Welling­ton.

The weather fore­cast isn’t too bad and I hope all our UK vis­i­tors en­joy the hos­pi­tal­ity and at­mos­phere the cap­i­tal can pro­vide.

As well as a party on the water­front, spe­cial light­ing in­stal­la­tions will guide all the fans on their way to the sta­dium for the sec­ond test on Satur­day.

Let’s back our team, but also en­joy the mo­ment.
