Choked All Blacks on the block


Disgruntled All Black fans listed their team on a New Zealand auction site, with offers as low as $1.00 being lodged for the rugby side. 

The listing on Trade Me, which has since been removed, read as follows:
"One used All Black team.
"Fully reconditioned earlier this year and all parts rotated.
"Unfortunately the choke is stuck on full.
"Pickup from Auckland Airport."
The Wallabies didn't get away unscathed either. One Trade Me bidder for the All Blacks – for $1.00 – commented that an even cheaper model was available at Sydney Airport.
