Yes, this should be a good RWC-legacy for the Northland region.

However, I am still very disappointed that the original design didnt go ahead because of - you guessed it - money.

It was an excellent layout for a regional stadium - really something different.

Taranaki still has to take the cake though. Rugby Park in Invercargill has to be the worst, and for a place that's very successful with performance and has bigger attendances than anywhere outside the 3 main centres it's a half-arsed looking bloody joke.

Trafalgar Park has had a spruce up over the past year and a half. Still looks shit, but at least it can seat more people in relative comfort now.

FREE bus & train rides for RWC ticketholders
NZ HERALD
12:15 PM Wednesday May 19, 2010

Rugby World Cup 2011 ticketholders in Auckland will get free rides on public transport to and from matches. Auckland RWC 2011 transport director Bruce Barnard said the move was to save ticketholders the time it would take to buy bus and train tickets. "This in turn means faster movement to and from matches which is the name of our game," Mr Barnard said. The free rides will be available in Auckland three hours before and after matches.

Auckland Regional Transport Authority chairman Rabin Rabindran said getting people out of their cars and on to public transport was the best way to move large crowds and keep traffic flowing smoothly. Tournament services general manager Nigel Cass said the offer of free public transport would "really impress our overseas visitors". Organisers said free public transport had played a critical part in the success of other major events worldwide.

I will make a prediction that the most embaressing venue (from a TV viewing perspective) won't be Invercargill, but Rugby Park Hamilton. Why? Check out what the additional seating to the right will look like:




This arrangement looked utterly ridiculous for the 'Bok test held there last year and when I saw it, and all I thought was "surely they won't do that for RWC2011". sadly, I was wrong.

I propose it be called the Tetris Stand. And it should never have been allowed.

And note the "GA" (General Admission) section for the opposite stand - thats standing (no seats). Same to apply at half the other grounds......

Yes it's quite a bizarre layout.

On a related theme, punters buying B category tickets in Dunedin based on Carisbrook stand to do quite well if Forsyth Barr Stadium is completed on time:



It's also an interesting precursor about future ticket prices for test matches down South ...

I dunno, reckon Rugby Park will take some beating tbh, what with pinky the coloured weatherboard wall of Girls High at one end, and the 1980s scoreboard at the other.

Dear god. That is going to look unprofessional. Did Rotorua get any upgrades for the RWC? Otherwise these two must be about the only ones that didn't, and it's gonna show.

Don't think Palmy did but then thats probably because they have been gradually upgrading over the last few years anway.

Upgraded the grandstand (outside and in), new seats on the terraces so its an all-seater, got a new big screen, they relaid the turf a while back and I think I read somewhere that they are getting flash electronic ticket readers for the main gates.

That last one might be for RWC2011, but that would be it I think.
