"We have no plans to send more troops to Afghanistan... The risk of them being shot in the back by the Australians is just too great..." ARU snubs NZ and votes for Japan's World Cup bid. 24 November, 2005.
Reference Number: DCDL-0000455
Prime Minister, Helen Clark, is wearing a military uniform and making a statement indicating that New Zealand doesn't have plans to send more troops to Afghanistan because they may be in danger of being shot in the back by an Australian. Australia voted for Japan in preference to New Zealand to hold the 2011 World Rugby Cup. New Zealand won the bid, however, possibly annoying the Australians.
