Westenra is quoted as saying: "It's not just the boys that get excited about Rugby World Cup time, and I'm so thrilled to be lending my vocals to the theme tune. The fact that New Zealand is this year's host, too, just makes it even more exciting."

To keep rival fans happy, she has recorded the song in English, Maori, Italian, French and Japanese.
