Wellington is never boring and the sights change from day to day. On February 3rd and 4th Wellington hosted the Sevens World Series. This is a rugby game which is played with 7 players instead of 13 players. The time is shorter than a regular rugby game. The regular game is 40 minute halves with a short half time. The 40 minute halves are continuous running time without breaks. However, in the sevens game it is 7 minute halves with a 2 minute half time. Teams come from all over the world, even the United States. They play at least 3 games each day and then it is eliminated down to two teams. The last two teams were Fiji and New Zealand. Of course New Zealand won 24-0.
