New Zealand sport fanatics had plenty to cheer about after two stunning victories across the Tasman this weekend.
On Saturday night, Graham Henry and his All Blacks finally emerged from under the shadow of Cardiff and the World Cup to stop Robbie Deans' Wallabies in a thrilling Tri-Nations and Bledisloe Cup decider.
Then last night, the New Zealand Warriors defied history and the odds to snatch victory from NRL minor premiers the Storm at their own home ground in Melbourne.
The Warriors' 18-15 win was historic as it was the first time an eighth-placed team had beaten the first-placed team in the ten-year history of the NRL finals series in its current format.
Fans will have one more chance to see Warriors hero Ruben Wiki in action at Mt Smart Stadium, as the Auckland-based team's victory has guaranteed them a home semifinal this Friday night against the Sydney Roosters.
Tickets for that game will go on sale tomorrow.
