Blue Chip Brings Adversaries Parents Together
14 July 2005
While the All Black's and Lions went head to head at Eden Park on Saturday two sets of proud parents, Phillip and Phillipa Wilkinson and Annie and Rick Gear came together to cheer their country's team in the Blue Chip New Zealand corporate box.
Jonny Wilkinson's parents enjoyed Blue Chip's hospitality and forged a friendship with Rico Gear's parents. Despite the Lion's loss on the field, many UK visitors will be taking great memories of New Zealand home - including new friendships.
