World Rugby Cup Ceremony - By Jesiah
Counting down from 10 the ceremony started as the number changed to 0. Then a Maori lady started of with a Karanga. It is a tradition for a Maori culture to welcome the visitors. Then the Kapa Haka group came and preformed an amazing haka. A young boy was thinking that he was a famous rugby player. He ran to the try line but suddenly the ball glowed like it was going to explode. This boy was running through these big huge players. With a lot of determination the boy started to fly up to the sky and to reach the enormous rugby ball. He came down safely and walked back down the field. While he was walking these name came up beside him, it was the highest try scorer in the RWC. I saw a legend. He was the best player. His name is Jonah Lomu! I really like the end because of the fireworks. The Fireworks was a huge display. It was like a shotgun shooting up in the air. I reckon this was the best rugby world cup ceremony.
