24 Hours To 'Sign On' For All Black Success

Kiwis Have Less Than 24 Hours To 'Sign On' For All Black Success

Rugby fans nationwide need to make a last minute dive for the line tomorrow to sign up their support for the All Blacks in special supporters' books in airports up and down the country.

Joining rugby greats such as Colin Meads, Anton Oliver and Gary Knight who helped launch the Air New Zealand initiative to remind the All Blacks of their wealth of support back home, Kiwis are being given the chance to write personal good luck messages.

The books are positioned on display stands near Air New Zealand domestic check-in areas at 24 airports from Kaitaia to Invercargill, available to all airport visitors.

As a school holiday idea, parents are encouraged to take their children out to their local airport tomorrow to record their personal wishes of All Black success for posterity.

Air New Zealand, as the All Blacks' official airline, has produced and distributed the books to give everyone around New Zealand the chance to wish the All Blacks luck in the Rugby World Cup 2003.

All Blacks Supporters' Books will be removed from all domestic airports on the morning of Thursday October 2 and taken to Australia for the All Blacks to view during their Rugby World Cup campaign.
