David Beckham Arrives In New Zealand


No David is not getting too familiar with this woman. David and his team mates were welcomed with a powhiri. David watched the welcoming ceremony respectfully Beckham and appearing spellbound.

David and his team mates should be very honoured to receive a powhiri welcome as it it usually only reserved for special visitors.

David said he was honoured by the welcome. "It is something that no player, and no person, would miss," he said.

He acknowledged that New Zealand was a rugby country and said he had watched the national side do the haka many times on TV.

He added: "I would love to stand in front of the All Blacks and see them do it."

After signing autographs for waiting fans, Beckham headed onto the team bus and to the hotel for a media conference where his attention turned towards Saturday’s upcoming match against the Wellington Phoenix.

Having just spent a time-freezing 40 mins with a huge soppy grin on my face, looking at these nose to nose pics and trying to imagine that feeling of having him gaze fully into my own eyes , breathing in his smell and watching him "twinkle" in that special way ,only Mr B can, I suddenly feel terribly sad. This will never happen to me. (weeps quietly, boo hoo)
Oh pull yourself together Janie!
