One can't help but notice the passion and "fever" that the phoniex suporters have in Wellington. Having attended a match I can attest that the excitiement is positively miles ahead of the atmosphere at any rugby game I attended last year. The stadium at any of the npc games may have well been full of granny's knitting. What hapened to the good old days of "the roar of the crowd" at rugby games in NZ. Look at SAF, the super 14 semi and final were an amazing atmosphere. What's keeping the crowds away?
