Using Google Maps

This is a map showing all the stadiums showing games in the RWC 2011. I had to search for each stadium one by one and place pins on the map using google maps.

Describing Piri-Weepu

It was windy as I looked out from the stadium to see Piri Weepu leading the haka like a Maori chief proudly. Mr Weepu is like an elite soldier in the war with an army called the All Blacks. He is yelling like a rooster, mad at another, ferociously shouting “Ka Mate!” He is stomping like a man going to the war for his family such as his daughter . He was born to be an All Black with his handsome looks.

Getting the ball passed to him, zooming like a cheetah as fast as the wind. Piri is fending a player with might...
Bam! He gets a try with bravery, representing New Zealand. Piri is proud to be an All Black wearing the #9 jersey once again.

He is non-stop again as he intercepts the ball and starts racing like a race horse. He’s as solid as a rhino evading aggressively, bulldozing all the people in his way. He is like an uncontrollable bull running loose. The almighty superhero gets another try without getting touched.

It looks like the other team is jealous of Piri Weepu’s muscles as he keeps on scoring tries like John Kirwan in the 1889 Web Ellis Cup.
Mr Piri is unstoppable. As Dan Carter passes the ball to Piri and he dives just on the half time buzzer and gets a try.

Thirty-nil is the score. No one can beat the All Blacks because of Piri Weepu’s greatness.

Buddy Writing - Welcoming Tonga

When I opened the car door I was crowded and pedestrians were singing with harmony. People were chanting in unison and they were screaming “Tonga!” Girls were hugging news reporters because they were so excited about the arrival of their team.

News reporters were crowded by Tongans and Kiwis dressed head to toe in red and white showing their support for their country. I finally got out of the car as the people surged forward like a wave sprinting down. I could hear an awesome Tongan haka tau and people were yelling so loudly it was like every single famous person had arrived.

I could see cars decorated with waving flags blowing in the wind. The chanting was louder than the airplane engines. Then the Tongan rugby team came out surprised and did a haka. I saw cameras and phones flashing rapidly. The Tongan rugby team emerged proudly from behind the arrivals gate and felt supported like they were going to win the world cup!
