Video: Special southern shout-out for the All Blacks

The Rugby World Cup final is nearly here and the All Blacks are getting a special shout-out from the most southern location on the planet.

Some of New Zealand's top climate change scientists and a team of Antarctica New Zealand support staff have sent their message of support to the team, more than 17,000km away.

The Scott Base team are all set to wake up early for the final and hope this time they'll actually be able to watch it.

"Our team at Scott Base have been listening to Rugby World Cup matches live via radio in the build-up to the final, but it's still unknown if they will get to see the big game live as internet and satellite capabilities are pretty limited in Antarctica," says Antarctica New Zealand general manager communications Jeanine Begg.

She says the chances are slim but a team of tech experts were working on ways to make it possible.
