The Kiwis take their rugby VERRIE seriously. Even the dominees are in on the Rugby World Cup fever.

That’s an actual sign outside an actual church called St Matthews In-The-City here in Auckland.

Yes. Do you also spot a hint of the Shroud of Turin there?

This church is in downtown Auckland opposite Sky City and the iconic Sky Tower. It’s also conveniently located near all the sports bars in the city…… maybe they’re just getting their message across to rugby fans in the most straight-forward way?
