With lots of determination the Warriors smashed over the Tigers and then Benji stopped the Warriors captain Mannering. Simon Mannering dropped the ball then Benji picked it up and stepped through the team. He stepped Russell Packer, hit Mallony, zoomed past Kevin Locke and last but not least, passed it out wide to Robbie Farrah and it was an incredible try!

With a countdown starting from ten, my Auntie opened the ceremony with a Karanga. If you don't know what a Karanga is it is a welcome translated in Maori. An amazing haka group came to the center of the field and performed a stunning haka. They were the champions of Matatini and the name of their group is Te Matari O Rehu.
I saw this glowing ball, which this 11 year old boy was using while he was running around on Eden Park thinking he was a famous Rugby player. But by the looks of it he actually looked like a Rugby player. He was smashing all these rugby players that were actually volunteers for the opening.
While running down the line of famous rugby players’ names he saw this shadow. The shadow was Jonah Lomu standing right next to his name. He put the ball down in front of him, and he flew up. He was flying up to this big massive ball. He touched it and held on to the big white ball.
I hope there will be another cool grand opening like that for the next Rugby World Cup.
