Balls, Bullets & Boots takes you from rugby field to battlefield and back, exploring the impact the hostilities had on New Zealand’s signature sport and its sportspeople. Rugby players during the Great War were athletes turned soldiers, making noble sacrifices for their country as they traded the cheers of spectators for the roar of artillery fire.

This exhibition explores the impact on colonial sportsmen (and their loved ones) of war's harsh realities as they were transplanted from the rugby fields of home overseas to fight for the ‘mother country’. It takes you through a rugby changing room, down into the trenches and more, while viewing a selection of historic objects, memorabilia, multimedia dramatisations and interactive exhibits along the way.

This will be the last chance to see this exhibition before it is decommissioned.
