I was going to explain what the Bledisloe cup is, but someone beat me to it...
Rugby Union's Bledisloe Cup is contested between Australia's Wallabies and New Zealand's All Blacks.
Nowadays this trophy is played out to decide which is the 7th and 8th best Rugby Union side in the world.

When beak out of my post quarter-finals drinking binge, I shall post a witty and eurudite reply.

I assume a eurudite reply is the opposite of one supplied by a tipply Dionysian.
