We got up early in order to go to a local pub to watch the Rugby World Cup Finals, starting at 8am! Twin Pines Manor is an older historic building a quick 5 minute drive from where we’re staying. It would have been a nice walk but a storm came in and it was raining and windy! They had a Halloween party last night so it was well decorated! We joined the locals who were excited and welcoming.
Unfortunately the Haka was not enough to rouse the All Blacks to win the game. They lost 11-12 to the South African team, even though the Springboks didn’t score a goal. They got all 12 of their points on penalty kicks, so basically the All Blacks gave the game away.
