Women's Rugby World Cup Teams Welcome

Dame Cindy was in Auckland to help welcome the 12 competing teams of the women's Rugby World Cup to Aotearoa New Zealand, and presented each team captain their participation cap and medal. The event also featured a welcome from Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei and a stunning Pasifika performance. This is the first time the women’s Rugby World Cup has been held in the Southern Hemisphere, with the first games taking place at a sold-out Eden Park. 

The Rugby World Cup has been greatly anticipated, as it was delayed from its original date in 2021 due to the pandemic.
