Kiwi Goes to Rugby Camp
Kiwi loves to play rugby for his team the Pipis with his best pals, Kea, Kakapo, Heron, Koura and Kiore under the watchful eye of Coach Morepork. Proud of his black jersey and the silver fern logo, Kiwi learns that friendship, fair play and teamship are just as important as the rules and playing skills. In Kiwi Goes to Rugby Camp, Kiwi and the Pipis attend a rugby camp. There are many fun activities for the Pipis but Kiwi is too bossy he is not fun to play with! He struggles with the team activities and learns an important lesson.
