Lions Fans Hunted By Wellington City Council

Lions Fans Hunted By Wellington City Council


Click for big version

Fans of the English Lions team were today welcomed to Wellington by a small, but loud cannon, positioned astern a launch chartered by the Wellington City Council. As well as tormenting the English fans with ear shattering claps of cannon fire, Wellington City Council workers danced and waved balloons at the friendly invading hordes. The English fans were also blessed with a barrage of early to mid 80s pop tunes presumably chosen to make them feel at home. The Wellington City Council workers and a gaggle of media were ferried around the Wellington Harbour on the good ship The Sweet Georgia.
