Teuila Blakely's Rugby World Cup 2011 Predictions
Teuila Blakely had a major role in Sione’s Wedding, one of New Zealand’s most successful movies ever and a second movie about to hit the screens in 2011, several years presenting her own live prime time show on music television, a broadcaster on breakfast and drive time radio, playwright and now star of Shortland Street - there’s really nothing in the entertainment business that Teuila Blakely hasn’t given a try!

Hi Teuila! Thanks for taking time out of your busy day on Shortie to answer our questions! We also can’t wait for Sione’s Wedding 2 to come out in January 2012!

Where were you on opening night? Did it make you proud to be a kiwi?

Teuila Blakely

I was at the waterfront for the opening festivities and we watched the opening ceremony on the big screen. It was an amazing, electric atmosphere! The fireworks were spectacular! I always feel proud to be a Kiwi but that opening ceremony was something else, I felt so proud of our country and our tangata whenua and the way we represented our rugby mad country to the world.
My favourite part of the Opening Ceremony was Sonny Bill Williams' wardrobe malfunction, what was yours?

Teuila Blakely

My favourite part of the opening ceremony were the Maori performers, brought tears to my eyes! My favourite part of the opening game... SBW shirt change, of course!
Who are your favourite teams and who are the one’s to look out for?

Teuila Blakely

My favourite teams are the All Blacks and Manu Samoa of course. I am keeping a close eye on the Wallabies too, not as a fan but because I think they could prove to be a bit of a threat, although with Digby Ioane in doubt for the rest of the comp, that could make a big difference for them. At least I hope so LOL. I'm also interested to see how the likes of Manu Tuilagi will do for England in his first World Cup too.
