One question regarding AMI: I've read that the Hadlee and Tui stands might both need to be demolished and that the Deans and Kelly stands dropped 300-400mm and would require extensive repairs -- is there any buzz around Christchurch/NZ about possibly demolishing the entire stadium and building anew on more stable ground, or has too much been already invested in Lancaster Park to do so?

Are you talking about Auckland? All public transport information is on the MAXX public transport website. Here is the specific promotional site on the new bus links.

User SYDNEY made an excellent series of posts about the new bus services in Auckland.

Hadlee stand will need to be demolished, the East and West Stands have dropped but from recent engineering reports it seems the stadium could be saved (if done it all sounds very experimental and costly) though there is a real prospect of a new stadium; for now the council is expecting Ami Stadium to stay intact. But in the end it seems to come down to if someone will be willing to insure it or not, certainly a mere stadium is not the highest of priorities at the moment. Btw 300-400mm is not a big deal in this city right now.

Or in a sentence: I don't know and neither does anyone else. ******* pissed off Canterbury lost because of that bullshit ref; that's all I ******* know.

SkyCity is welcoming the world to Auckland by lighting up the Sky Tower in a host of different colours ahead of the Rugby World Cup. Kicking off this Saturday, for 20 days the tower will be lit up in each of the participating countries' national colours in the lead-up to the tournament on September 9. Namibia is the first country to be paid tribute to with Saturday's tower shining a green stem with a blue and red top. The tower will shine a red stem with a white and blue top on Sunday with USA being the second nation being honoured.

The All Blacks will be honoured with a black tower on the eve of the tournament's opening match against Tonga at Eden Park on September 9. Here is a guide for Aucklanders to track which team is being celebrated when they catch a glimpse of the iconic tower each night.

He finds the title offensive lol. Maybe you can run to sercan and plead for this atrocity to be amended. Don't worry, no one will be confused. When people hear of rugby, they all think Union anyway, so you have nothing to worry about.
