welcome for the
Rugby World Cup in
Rugby fans are invited to help roll
out the Rugby World Cup welcome
mat for the visiting Canadian,
French and Japanese teams when
they start arriving at Hawke s
Bay airport from tomorrow.
Canada is the first team to
arrive at the airport tomorrow
afternoon at 5.30pm. They will be
followed on Friday by the French
team at 2.45pm, and finally the
Japanese next Thursday at
Regional RWC 2011 co-
ordinator Peter Mooney says the
10-minute functions planned for
each team will be on a smaller
scale than the official welcomes
they received when they first
landed in New Zealand.
The teams are contracted to
only attend one official welcome
ceremony at their first port of call.
Unfortunately Napier is not con-
sidered a first port of call as the
teams landed in places like Auck-
land and Northland, Mr Mooney
However, the teams would still
receive a regional welcome,
organised by the region s iwi.
We re using Hukarere Girls
College to sing the waiata -- so
this is probably the first all-girl
welcome they have received -- and
we ll have kapa haka performers
and then speeches from kaumatua
and then the mayor.
At this stage it s only Barbara
Arnott -- we bid as a region, but
they are arriving in her city after
The welcome functions will be
held inside the airport. Mr
Mooney said if too many people
turned out to greet the teams it
might become a bit of a squeeze,
but if fans want to get all dressed
up and come along -- then abso-
lutely, he said.
Canada features in both of
Hawke s Bay s two Rugby World
Cup pool matches at Napier s
McLean Park -- against France
this Sunday at 8.30pm and then
Japan at 5pm on Tuesday, Sep-
tember 27 -- so will be here the
longest for 15 nights.
Prior to Canada and France s
pool match, some reserve players
and coaching staff from both
teams will be special guests in the
Hastings Blossom Festival Par-
ade, starting at 1.30pm this
After their first match, Can-
adian players are scheduled next
Wednesday to visit students at St
Patrick s and Onekawa Schools in
Napier, and Frimley and Parkvale
schools in Hastings.
And the Canadian team has
also generously opened their Sept-
ember 21 and 22 training sessions
to the public from 10am till 11am
at Tremain Field.

Anticipation: Bluewater Hotel manager Jane Osborne and owner Rodney Green are looking
forward to the arrival of the Canadian rugby team tomorrow evening.
By CLAIRE HAMLIN
A big welcome awaits the Canadian
rugby team players who arrive in Napier
tomorrow for a two-week stay at the
Bluewater Hotel. Owner Rodney Green
and manager Jane Osborne have spent
the past 18 months planning for the
occasion and say that all is now ready to
give the team a stay to remember.
We ve been working closely with the
Canadian coach, former All Black Kieren
Crowley, who has been to stay with us
before, Mr Green says.
The Canadian beer is in the chiller
and the maple syrup is ready for the
pancakes -- all we need now is the team
We re planning a fishing trip on the
Bluewater boat, the Golden Eagle, and
the team will enjoy seeing the sights of
Napier from the stretch Hummer. Obvi-
ously, we want to be sure that our
visitors have the best possible impression
of our city and province.
Rooms at the Bluewater have been
renovated and, while that was planned to
happen anyway, Mr Green says the
World Cup event gave management a
date to work to.
The menu for all meals has been
chosen in advance and will, of course,
feature the freshest produce that
Hawke s Bay can provide.
We re starting to get a bit excited now,
as all has been so long in the planning,
Ms Osborne says. Although we have
been in communications with the Rugby
World Cup on a regular basis, we were
sworn to secrecy.
But now the hotel is dressed up and
everything is in place to ensure that the
Canadian rugby team has a fantastic
