On Saturday the Waikato rugby team put the Ranfurly Shield on the line against Hawke's Bay.

We've got a huge Shield history here and this photo, from 1993, is of the street parade after we ended Auckland's massive eight year tenure as holders.

Most impressive where some of the players ended up. That's Sport Waikato chief executive Matthew Cooper with the Shield, flanked by former All Blacks coach John Mitchell and current Wales and British and Irish Lions coach Warren Gatland and behind him is current All Blacks assistant coach Ian Foster. How cool's that.
