As the 2019 Rugby World Cup gets underway, my husband dug this ticket out his collection from the very first RWC back in 1987.
How about this for inflation??!!
Out of the memorabilia boxes (and I’m talking about 80 years of rugby programs diligently collected from first class games and tests by my husband and his grandfather before him – oh the joy) we discovered this ticket and program of the very first Rugby World Cup which held in New Zealand back in 1987.
Check out the ticket price – $5 to see Canada v Tonga at McLean Park, Napier. Row B in the McKenzie stand for a fiver!!
He has been to every Rugby World Cup, except South Africa in 1995 and he’s gutted to be missing the 2019 in Japan.
We went to London in 2015 together and I can tell you, tickets were a LOT more than $5!
If you’re a New Zealand All Blacks fan like we are, you might to read my post on what the famous haka is all about >>
