This is not a definitive collection of shield moments, yet nor is it a ‘best of’ collection. This is a visual reflection of shield moments from Otago’s 2018/2019 reign. There was some fantastic rugby played as Otago successfully defended the shield six times, many people involved in making the defences special occasions and a wonderful community buzz whenever the shield was taken on tour.

I hope you enjoy this visual reflection of Otago’s shield reign.

Matiu Abraham of Thames Valley and Otago’s Joe Latta share a joke after the Ranfurly Shield match between Otago and Thames Valley played at the Wanaka Showgrounds in Wanaka, on Saturday 13th July, 2019.
