2011 Bledisloe Cup Roadshow

With only one Bledisloe Cup match in Australia in 2011 and it heading back to Brisbane, there is an opportunity to spread the word about the game using an icon of international Rugby – The Bledisloe Cup, once again in the sunshine state.
 
The inaugural BCR was run in 2006 from Bundaberg to Brisbane, and it has proved successful in subsequent years the last three being in NSW. With the considerable excitement that the Bledisloe Cup brings, the Australian Rugby Union and Queensland Rugby Union will bring back the Cup and to take it to as many Queenslanders (within the rugby community) as possible – so everyone can share in the festivities.
 
The Roadshow hit the roads of Queensland Country visiting 3 Primary Schools and 1 Junior Club almost every day for two weeks, culminating in the Bledisloe Cup match at Suncorp stadium on Saturday 27th August. Check out the schedule below and key an eye out for your opportunity to see the silverware.
 
Additionally we will have the Reds Super Rugby trophy on show and even our very own ‘Bill’ - the William Webb Ellis Cup that Australia were presented following their two wins at the 1991 and 1999 Rugby World Cups. Make sure you get involved with the ‘Have you seen Bill?’ promotion
