    Dunedin's New Stadium

    Got down to Dunedin this past weekend to support the boys in black and red and more-so, to be honest, to check out the new roofed stadium.

    Outside...



    Inside...







    Pues, aquí estamos.

    Yup, about 20,000 in the fixed seats and about ten thousand more of temporary seating in the east and west ends.

    10 September -- Argentina v England -- 20:30 NZST 15:30 Thai

    18 September -- England v Georgia -- 18:00 NZST 13:00 Thai

    24 September -- England v Romania -- 18:00 NZST 13:00 Thai

    02 October -- Ireland v Italy -- 20:30 NZST 15:30 Thai

    The 10 September match and the 02 October match look to be good ones.

    ^ Should be good. You going to them?

    Thought they might have put a Scotland game or two there. Was Cristchurch due to hold any games before the quake struck?

    Yes, but now there are none.

    The Argentina v England game looks to be a good one, but unfortunately I can't make that match. Ireland v Italy also looks good.

    Scotland will play two matches in Invercargill (about 3-and-a-bit hours down the road from Dunedin), one in Wellington and one in Eden Park in Auckland.

    Of course, this is pool play. If they go to the QF they will play in either Wellington or Auckland.
