The parade has just gone past now sitting wait for my dad to bring me a drink.
Graham Henry saw me holding my smaller replica Rugby World Cup and waved at me pointing to mine and his original. If you don't know who Graham Henry is, he is the coach of the All Blacks.
The funny thing is that the players had to go in pick ups for the parade. It made it much more personal with 3 per pickup, dancers and bands in between. Looks like schools etc all involved in putting together a very special parade. We had a ringside seat based on our inside knowledge from the coffee shop.
AB bus arrived between the pickups and all players came out and stood up or sat on hay bales to accompanying screeches from the crowd.
Fantastic way to end the trip.
