It was a wet and chilly Melbourne day that welcomed the Carters Boots ‘n’ All Bledisloe Cup Tour on June 28. But the group weren’t going to let the weather dampen their spirits as they arrived at the 5-star Grand Hyatt to enjoy a long weekend, the highlight being the annual clash between the All Blacks and the Wallabies.
Friday saw the group enjoy free time as they explored the sights of this vibrant city, famous for its arts, culture and, of course, great shopping!
That evening at the Boots ‘n’ All welcome function, the group was wowed as guest speaker, Nick Farr-Jones, arrived to entertain with jokes and anecdotes of his time captaining the Wallabies.
There was excitement in the air on Saturday and many an All Blacks supporter could be seen out on the streets of Melbourne dressed in black. The pre-match function at Feddish in Federation Square got everyone in the mood for what was soon to follow.
The group arrived at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground and, despite the All Blacks’ 20-15 loss to the Wallabies, still enjoyed the experience of a live game between the two great rivals.
