The New Zealand Ambassador, Rt Hon. Mike Moore, is pleased to announce that the 16th Annual Ambassador's Shield Rugby will be played on Sunday, November 11, 2012.
The feature match will again see the US Military Combined Services select side lock horns with the New Zealand Ambassador's XV, in what is set to be a great spectacle of rugby. This years event will also feature a host of men's, women's, golden oldies and youth rugby in what is a truly spectacular exhibition of rugby in Washington DC. If you've never seen the famous New Zealand war dance—the "Haka"—or live rugby then this is a must-see event unique to the area. This years match will be played at Ft McNair, SW Washington DC - click here for the flyer and directions to the ground.
Formerly known as Hyde Leadership Public Charter School, Perry Street Preparatory Public Charter School, serves as partner in the event to benefit its youth rugby program. To learn more about the school go to http://www.pspdc.org.
