England Rugby World Cup winning sod auctioned for charity

Surf for turf

A piece of turf cut from the Telstra stadium in Sydney - where England won the Rugby World Cup last year - is being auction on eBay for charity.

The 30cm square (that's a foot square in old money) of turf is being flogged to raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital.

The auction kicked off today and runs until April 12. And just to make sure there's no jiggery-pokery, the sod comes with a certificate of authenticity signed by the Telstra stadium head groundsman, Graeme Logan.

The charity auction coincides with the launch of World Championship Rugby, the official video game of the England Rugby Team. ®
