Rugby Face Painting


In the sporting and rugby world - face painting is increasingly becoming a popular way for supporters to show their commitment to their teams. Whether its a national flag or a team logo the effect is colourful and striking. From school rugby to club encounters, right through to Super 14 clashes, face painting features as a way of showing spirited support. International matches are often lively encounters with much national pride at stake. What better place to show of ones team colours and flag than on ones body.

Tri Nations Rugby

tri nations rugby

The Tri Nations is an international rugby union series that is contested annually by Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. The competition is organized by SANZAR, a consortium formed by the three countries' rugby governing bodies – the Australian Rugby Union, the New Zealand Rugby Football Union and the South African Rugby Union.

The series is played on a home-and-away basis. From the first tournament in 1996 until 2005, and again in 2007, the three teams played each other twice; in 2006 and 2008 it was three times. Since the inception of the series the games played between Australia and New Zealand also go toward determining the winner of the Bledisloe Cup each year.
