Ranfurly Shield gets make-over

11:40 am on 16 November 2012

New Zealand's most coveted provincial rugby prize, the Ranfurly Shield, has had a makeover.

At the conclusion of this year's ITM Cup, the New Zealand Rugby Union sent the famous 'Log o' Wood' away for repairs and to have the engraved badges replaced to make room for future holders of the Shield.

The 108-year-old Shield is now back with holders Waikato for the summer.
