All Blacks trophies on display in Wellington

9:47 pm on 10 October 2012

Three major trophies won by the All Blacks over the past year are on display in Wellington.

It is the first time the Webb Ellis Cup, Bledisloe Cup and Investec Rugby Championship Cup have been showcased together.

Long queues formed at the ASB Sports Centre in the suburb of Kilbirne on Wednesday, during the second week of school holidays, mostly of school children wanting to get close to the glittering cups.

The Rugby Union says the more time the cups are out of the cabinet the better.

The All Blacks play the Wallabies again in two weeks, when they hope to set a new record of 17 matches unbeaten.

In November, the team is off to Europe and will play against Scotland, Wales, England and Italy.
