A great day for Otago

the new holders of the Ranfurly Shield...which is New Zealand provincial rugby's most prized possession.. first played for over 100 years ago.
The last time Otago held the shield was in 1957.  There have been 22 failed attempts to beat the holders of the shield in the 56 years since then.  Until last night that is when they won..you might imagine the excitement...and here is our team with the shield..
