Rugby fans will love the Magic of Bledisloe museum exhibition on in Sydney this August. The Magic of Bledisloe

The Bledisloe Cup is an event that is well known for bringing grown men and women to tears.

Australians in particular are passionate about the sport it celebrates, and that's why the Magic of Bledisloe is sure to attract many rugby-mad fans to this museum exhibit. 

Relive those moments of glory and pain at the Museum of Sydney this August 2 to 18 at the historical display of the epic Trans-Tasman battles of times gone by.

Check out the 'hand of God' try, give kudos to the Kiwis where it's due (e.g. for Jonah Lomu's 'greatest rugby game ever' in 1987), and watch George Gregan perform 'that' tackle on repeat. These are just some of the classic moments of rugby history you'll be able to find at the event.

Open daily from 9.30am to 5pm, and free of charge, this event is conveniently located near to both Mantra 2 Bond Street and Mantra on Kent, so you'll be able to visit as often as you like!

The end of the exhibit will coincide with a Bledisloe Cup Test Match at the ANZ Stadium. 

In the last match of 2012, the Wallabies didn't manage to beat the All Blacks, but they did tie up the game with a draw, ending the Kiwi's 16-game winning streak and leaving the field wide open for this year's series.

This year might just be the year that the Wallabies bring the cup home for the first time in over a decade, so make sure you're at the game to witness the action.

Who knows, in a few years' time, you might return to the museum to see a display depicting their epic 2013 success over the New Zealanders!
