Snowing around N.Z

Yesterday around New Zealand it was snowing and people couldn’t see. The heavy snow and strong wind made the trees fall on to the ground. It was treacherous to walk down the street. On the tree’s there was snow

The first rugby ball.

When the first rugby ball was made they had to kill pigs, for the small rugby ball they hand to kill a baby pig. They had to kill the pigs to get their bladder to make the rugby balls. They did not have any standard sizes that they could make a rugby ball out of.

To blow up a rugby ball you had to blow up the bladder like a balloon, because there where no pumps. When they had to blow it up it was extremely smelly.

Now we don’t use a pig bladder we use a bladder made of rubber. We have to pump it up with our hands, we do not use our lung power any more.
