The gay rugby world cup

An international tournament for gay rugby teams is underway this weekend in New York to win the Bingham Cup, named after a gay rugby player who died in the 9/11 plane crash in Pennsylvania.
There aren't any New Zealand teams in the competition this year. I don't really know why because there are supposed to be two gay rugby teams in New Zealand: the Wellington Krazy Knights and the Auckland Heroes, so Australasian pride will have to be carried by the Sydney Convicts.

UPDATE: The Sydney Convicts won the cup. Congratulations, boys!
