Flag ceremony with New Zealand and Argentina flags. Both national anthems were sung; we really enjoyed the NZ anthem because it has verses in both Maori and English.
This is a "scrum" when the ball is tossed into the center, and the opposing teams push each other as hard as possible to get the ball out to the members of their team, who are standing in the background ready to retrieve it. Rugby is an amazingly physical sport with no timeouts, a short 15-minute halftime, and no helmets or padding to protect the players. It made us kind of look like "wimps" with all the protection we use in football...but that's okay, we still prefer football! However, this was a great experience, and we would enjoy attending more rugby games...they are so popular here in NZ.
