Re: Call Me Pearl: The NZ Culture Thread

Although this is a movie about South Africa, and how the South African team won the 1995 Rugby World Cup, it was New Zealand (and the favourites to win the tournament) that they beat in the final.

Re: Call Me Pearl: The NZ Culture Thread

Although it should be mentioned Wales are a class rugby team and actually came quite close this past weekend (Final Score 12-19). This is a r...
