Explaining Rugby

This was seen on the streets of New Zealand…

A taste of Kiwi humour.

I was born in the land of Banjo Paterson, gum trees, and weather extremes. I am a freelance writer. I live in the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand, but still like to claim my Australian heritage. I graduated with a Bachelor of Communications in 2008. I am writing my first novel. I love to write poetry, short stories, and also write for the web. And there is nothing that is on a par with a sunny summer's day spent at Waihi Beach.

    1. Abel Tasman was a Dutch explorer and the first to reach here, and map it out, in his ships Heemskerck and Zeehaen. Tasman stayed at the South Island in Golden Bay (which he named Murderers’ Bay due to clashes with Maori) in December 1642. He mapped out sections of the two main islands’ west coasts, calling the islands Staten Landt, after the States-General of the Netherlands. It is Staten Landt that appears on his first maps of this country. Dutch cartographers would later change the name to Nova Zeelandia in Latin, then Nieuw Zeeland, it being actually named after the Dutch province of Zeeland. When Captain James Cook arrived some 100 years later he anglicised it to the now New Zealand.

There are two things I know for certain. One: Bert and Ernie are gay. Two: I want to hear your opinion.
