  100 Years of Maori Rugby   First Rugby Lenticular Stamp  
  On 21 May 1910 the first official New Zealand Maori team played its inaugural game in Rotorua against the Rotorua sub-union. The New Zealand Maori team won 25–5 setting the standard for all the games to follow.
 
French Post issued the first lenticular stamp, featuring rugby, on 6 September 2007 for the Rugby World Cup. Tiny lenticules reflect images on a single stamp, varying with the inclination angle - basically, a short animation.
