JUCY Loves RugbyThere is officially ZERO more sleeps.  The opening of the World Cup is finally upon us and New Zealand is going rugby mad!

This morning some of the crew took a walk down to the viaduct and it’s all going on.  Roads are being closed, massive screens are being set up on the streets and there are loads of people buzzing around adding finishing touches to construction going on around The Cloud which is on Queens Wharf and is going to be party central.  The vibe in Auckland City is amazing.

All our JUCY Branches are getting into the spirit.  Special JUCY Rugby jerseys have been supplied to all New Zealand staff which they are all wearing with pride.  And of course “Rugby Lucy” is showing her presence in our branches and hotel for fans to take pictures with.

We’re really looking forward to the next 6 weeks of rugby.  Let’s show the world how New Zealand turns on a party, how awesome our country is and our great hospitality.

JUCY Loves Rugby!
