West Ham Kiwi Reid trained as All Blacks conquered the world

West Ham's Kiwi central defender Winston Reid was at the Hammers Chadwell Heath training ground on Sunday as the All Blacks clung on to defeat the French by 8-7 and win the Rugby World Cup for the first time in nearly a quarter of a century. Reid was in early preparing for West Ham's Championship clash at Brighton which saw the East Londoner's triumph 1-0.

"I watched a little bit of it, but unfortunately it was during a training session on Sunday," admitted said the 23-year-old All-Whites international.

"In the end, one of the coaches just told me the result after we came off and I was delighted.

"Everyone in New Zealand is a rugby fan and I follow it when I can. It has been a long time since we won it so it was about time and an excellent result."
