NZ Quiz Championships

In search of New Zealand's smartest pub quiz team

Every year a pub's quiz night culminates in a nationwide search for New Zealand's smartest pub quiz team, the best of which gather in a three hour extravaganza which is often only decided by a point or two!

Picture of The Brofessors

A fun-filled evening hosted by James McOnie saw The Brofessors from The Lumsden Freehouse in Newmarket, Auckland take out their third title at the 19th annual SKY TV New Zealand Pub Quiz Championships on Saturday night. Just a point separated them from Eddie's Back, Don't Panic from The Residence in Wellington, with Foxtrot Mike Lima from The Postman's Leg in Glenfield, Auckland in the bronze medal position.

Special mention goes to Banter Over the Brains from Heartland Hotel Croydon in Gore, who took out the 'Farthest Travelled' prize, narrowly pipping Sex, Drugs & Sausage Rolls from The Hayes in Queenstown, who as a team spent the week prior travelling north in a campervan!

Fun times had by all – keep an eye out as we will be posting more photographs of the event on our Facebook page. Looking forward to next year already!
