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.Originally posted by The TRUTH!!@Apr 5 2006, 08:08 PM
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.
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.
