    Warmer than the last guess but still far off.

    Okay, let me guess:

    500?? But that would've been less I guess before this year's world cup...

    Closest yet (will give 10 either side of the correct answer).

    Sorry, the "wrong year" clue was ambiguous.....Stradey Park hosted games at two different RWCs. I've already said that Netherdale is wrong. The correct answer is from the other World Cup.

    We have a winner! 526 points over all 8 world cups (with this year contributing 98 points).

    Thought questions like that would allow everyone to have a pop you know? Doesn't exclude people who weren't at Invercargill in 1987.

    Right year. Sardis Road was the second smallest that year. Wrong country by the way! The correct answer hosted famous victories for The North over the ABs in 1979 and the Wallabies in 1988 and is still the home ground of the town's side who remain in the National Leagues.

    I did, although like any anally retentive quiz master I double checked that the answer I had in my head was indeed correct.

    Edit: any question obscure enough to be worth posting is likely to exclude some people. FWIW I don't remember anything about the 1987 RWC, but had read about and seen the Huw Richards incident before...just a bit gutted I couldn't remember his name.

    Ponty 7,681 is the current capacity, although the capacity would have been more in 1999, there were 8,500 for the WC Argentina V Samoa game which Samoa won. When we played the touring Springboks the Wednesday before Wales played them 3 days later (without 4 of our best players who were on Wales duty) there were over 10,500 spectators and for the record we outplayed them but lost 3 - 9, it was Movember 1994 for the record. I remember having a few drinks with some Boks from Natal in the club house and later with the help of Phil (Gurkha) John Ponty's hooker 6 of us sneaked into the official reception in the other bar under the stand, it was a memorable evening.
    Anyway I have no idea what the answer to the question is.

    Clearly nobody is going to get this.
    We know by now that it's 1991 but if it isn't Pontypool or Sardis then I just don't know.

    Probably some obscure little French hamlet nobody can pronounce.

    Zinzan's the only one I can remember, I'd have wild guess at Bergamasco for Italy, can't think of a 3rd though. Good question.
