Getting behind the All Blacks Go the mighty All Blacks: Leo O'Sullivan believes the World Cup is a major opportunity for New Zealand to promote itself to the world. By NICHOLAS BOYACK A conversation with a French rugby fan, shortly after the All Blacks' infa- mous 2007 quarterfinal loss to France, provided the inspiration for a radical fit- out for Petone Pak'n Save. The Petone supermarket features large goal posts in the carpark, hundreds of All Black banners, the flags of all the nations, and an amazing collection of rugby memorabilia and photos. Owner Leo O'Sullivan is coy about the cost, but the passionate rugby fan is pleased with the result. He believes the Rugby World Cup is a huge'' oppor- tunity for New Zealand that should provide the country with massive economic long- term benefits. The response to the tour- nament so far has left him a little disappointed and he says the fit-out is an attempt to generate some passion. He began work on it two years ago and says the idea came from a Frenchman who told him All Black fans need- ed to get more passionate. After the loss [to France in 2007], he said, I am sorry about that but you are never going to win until the fans get more passionate about the All Blacks'.'' New Zealand rugby fans are reluctant to show how they feel about the All Blacks and Mr O'Sullivan says that needs to change. When I thought about the French guy, I thought he was right. We have 2000 Phoenix fans who make more noise than rugby fans.'' One problem he faced was the strict rules surrounding the World Cup. He and his lawyers had to nego- tiate with the rugby authorities and the final plan had to be OKed by the New Zealand Rugby union. The car park has a set of giant goal posts featuring the All Blacks name and he was allowed to use that only because it includes Sanitarium, who sponsor the All Blacks. Despite the hassles, he says it has all been worthwhile and he has been delighted with the feedback. The photos and memorabilia fea- ture Jonah Lomu, Tana Umaga, Sean Fitzpatrick and many of the greatest All Black moments. There are also plenty of pre-World Cup subjects, including Colin Meads and Willie John McBride, all the French captains from 1958 to 2007, and the 1937 South African team that toured New Zealand. The Hutt News will feature some- one every week who has made a major effort to get into the spirit of the World Cup. You can email suggestions to sports @huttnews.co.nz.
