It appears that as the people of New Zealand continue to battle against the odds, in their daily lives they must have more of a challenge as well. This has been made evident from the start of 2015. The New Zealand Rugby League for instance has had an increase in 163 registering to play the game since 2014. This is a big increase as normally only a small amount.
The most notable change is that a large portion of men have resigned from the sport while females continue to sign up to play by mass numbers. During 2014 there were 17,825 female players in the league but as of 2015 there are 19,891. This is an increase of more than two thousand females registering for the league, something that the league is proud of. Advertisements for the league now focus more heavily on woman than they do on men.
