Retro Rugby Canterbury v Wellington NPC Final 2000

Welcome to Retro Rugby show where we look back at a memorable game from the past.

Back in 2000 Wellington made their second ever NPC final. They came in a big underdogs to Canterbury who had only lost one game all season. That was their opening game in Wellington so revenge was on the cards.

Anthony was the one to suggest we talk about this one. As we talk about during the show it’s a longtime between drinks for Wellington and Hurricanes fans. This was the first (and only) NPC final victory for Wellington (Championship victories don’t count).

You can listen to the podcast on iTunesAnchor or your favourite podcasting app.

Here’s the actual game if you’d like to watch it:
