Fan base . . . Otago Rugby players (back, left) James Lentjes and Sam Gilbert deliver the Ranfurly Shield to waiting fans at Alexandra’s Henry’s store today. Among those keen to get a glimpse of the trophy are (from left) Jordan McKee (10), Noah Peterson (10), Josh (13), Alex (12), Dan (11) and Will Scott (8). Otago wrestled the Ranfurly Shield from Taranaki with a clinical 30-19 win last weekend. It was the third time Otago has won the log o’ wood in the past seven years. Otago will work hard to defend the shield when it plays against Hawke’s Bay in Dunedin on Sunday. PHOTO: ALEXIA JOHNSTON
