She’s arrived: The two best looking ladies of the Waikato enjoyed a well-deserved catch up at Waikato Stadium today. 

It has been two weeks since the Ranfurly Shield was sent down to Wellington for a nip and tuck and she has since returned to us looking better than ever.

There to greet the overnight courier was the lovely Mooloo, who spent the day hanging out with the log o' wood on the paddock, scene of Waikato’s triumph over Hawke's Bay to retain the prized trophy.

The sheild's  iconic silver plaques, each bearing the name of the holders of the shield, were removed and replaced with smaller ones.
