Romance On The Footy Field
A Poverty Bay back proved rugby and romance can co-exist when he proposed to his partner on air during the filming of the Toyota Heartland Rugby television series.
A first for Toyota Heartland Rugby and possibly Air New Zealand NPC, Poverty Bay's Kahu Tamatea looked into the lens of the camera and proposed to his long-time partner Brodie during the filming at Rugby Park, Gisborne.
The filming was a well-guarded secret with Kahu proposing last Saturday and Heartland Rugby screening five days later on Wednesday night.
Waiting in agonising anticipation for the screening on SKY Sport, Kahu received a shocked and excited 'YES!' to his proposal, much to his delight.
Heartland Rugby returns to Gisborne this weekend for the 2nd division Air New Zealand NPC when Poverty Bay battles it out with Nelson Bays. The couple will be interviewed and a screening of Brodie's reaction will be shown.
