Actually .......my bad........ there not playing any games at Telstra Stadium

Telstra Dome only holds 50-55,000 but the atmosphere with the roof closed is amazing and as you said there's plenty of Kiwis in Melbourne so they might get close to a sell out.
Nah mate, they won't even come close. I can see the biggest regular game of the tournament being Australia v Great Britain in Brisbane, if not the biggest of them all. It will probably decide who plays in the final and Brisbane always gets the best Test crowds. I might get up for this one. I still think the tournament will fail down under though.

What Wally reckons..

Oct 14: New Zealand v Australia, 8pm, Ericsson Stadium, Auckland (19,000)

Oct 21: Australia v New Zealand, 8pm, Telstra Dome, Melbourne (16,000)

Oct 28: New Zealand v Great Britain, 8pm, Jade Stadium, Christchurch (15,000)

Nov 4: Australia v Great Britain, 8pm, Aussie Stadium, Sydney (25,000)

Nov 11: New Zealand v Great Britain, 8pm, Westpac Stadium, Wellington (12,000)

Nov 18: Australia v Great Britain, 8pm, Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane (36,000)

Nov 25: Final, 8pm, Aussie Stadium, Sydney. (38,000)

Melbourne is going to be embarrassing and the Christchurch and Wellington games could both turn out to be disasters if the Kiwis arn't doing well - I was generous. No sell outs, bar maybe the opener in Auckland.

Nice one Helen, that sut him up. :p


And I love the fact that Great Britain play all of their matches in a row, hopping back and forth, whilst Australia gets 2 byes... -_-

It isn't actually that expensive to fly bewteen NZ and Australia - you just have to book ahead and shop around.

I can sometimes get flights cheaper travelling to NZ from Melbourne then I can to Sydney.

The draw is crap but not for Australia!

I'm sure that would be quite right, but most people will book with tour companies as there is a lot of planning required here. And they will bu,p up the prices, of that you can be sure.

How much are flights from Aus to New Zealand, just as a matter of interest?

Those estimates are probably a bit generous, no one gives a f*** about League in NZ unless the Warriors are winning.

Do the NZRL have anything to do with organising the tournament? They thought they could sell out Eden Park.

damn a league game at eden park wud be special...

the only way they can fill up the garden of auckland is if:

a) the warriors win premiership and crowned nrl champs
B) they had a full strength kiwi squad full of all our healthy fit super stars
c) and they gave away 10,000 free tickets

depending on how things go with the warriors this year and our stars overseas we can sell out ericson,wellington and christchurch

Just watched the Cowboys smash the Tigers and i gotta say....

Thurston>>>>>>Marshall( injured again :rolleyes:) and Prince combined...... when is he going to get a spot in a Kangaroo jersey?? he's in rare form

Mat Bowen, is there anyone more exciting in the game??? the Aussie selectors would be crazy if they didnt select him for the ANZAC test and Tri Nations.Let him play off the bench and he'll carve NZ and GB to pieces.
