IRB head lavish in praise of NZ hosts
NZ HERALD
5:30 AM Friday Oct 14, 2011

This Rugby World Cup has been the best ever - "probably" - and the tournament will return to New Zealand some day, says the head of the International Rugby Board. "If you take it all together, it's certainly exceptional," IRB chief executive Mike Miller said yesterday. "Best ever? Probably. "But, you know, if you ask the people who worked on France, they would say, yes, it's very good, but ... and the people who worked on Australia as well, which was another great tournament.

"It's certainly set the bar very high for England. It's going to be very difficult for England or anyone who follows to have a tournament which has been as successful as this, I think." Only two weekends remain. Two hundred tickets to Sunday's All Blacks v Australia semifinal were released at midday yesterday and sold out within hours. For Saturday's semifinal, between France and Wales, about 3500 tickets are left in most seating categories, priced from $300 to $800. Tournament organisers have also announced that a couple of hundred extra tickets to the grand final will be made available today at midday.

IRB tournament director Kit McConnell encouraged visitors and locals to make the most of the few matches left. "Don't let the last two weekends pass you by," Mr McConnell said. He urged everyone to end the World Cup on a high. "If you can't manage to make it out to the stadiums, just make sure you share it with friends and family, get down to the waterfront, get down to a fan zone nearby, just make sure you make the most of the last two weekends." Mr Miller said the tournament's atmosphere, volunteers, operations and the co-operation between Rugby New Zealand 2011, the New Zealand Rugby Union, local and national governments and the IRB had been "absolutely great".

But the performances on the field were also standouts. "The first World Cup I saw in the flesh was in '91 and I would say this must be the most competitive World Cup ever." The IRB had made a calculated decision to pair a return to New Zealand - a spiritual home of rugby but yielding lower revenues - with a high-grossing event in England. Deciding two World Cup hosts at a time allowed some risks to be taken, he said.

"I think it's good that in this modern era, the council was prepared to take a decision that wasn't just based on, 'where can we get the most money?'," he said. "Whether we come back to New Zealand at some point? Look, I'm sure the World Cup will come back here at some point. It's just that there are so many other countries that want to host now that it will be a while."

It's going to be a hard act for England to follow, because, unlike the current tournament, rugby won't be the only show in town. On the opening weekend, far more people will be at Premier League soccer than at the World Cup games! Also, from what I saw, the opening ceremony saw the centre of Auckland full of people joining in the excitement - however the sheer size and scale of London will make that next to impossible, and there will be people in Trafalgar Square without the first clue that a World Cup is even happening...

I'm massively looking forward to it, and will go to as many games as I can manage, but I can't see it capturing the country's imagination in the way that the current RWC has...

Fantastic - we were sitting on the edge of our seats and when the whistle blew the crowd went wild - well done France ! The Kiwi's just love the French spirit and how friendly they are ... now it's our turn and let's hope that it is an All Blacks vs France final

The end of the match was very intense and stressful, what a relief when the final whistle sounded...
Congratulations to the Welsh who never gave up, great match from them.

Now, I hope it will be a better match between NZ and Australia, and we will have the revenge of the final of 1987

What is odd is that I rarely saw a French team so bad. It will be necessary to be much better not to be ridiculous in finale!

Good luck, All Blacks.
In France, we says "Et que le meilleur gagne"


Please. Say to your toilet paper press to stop insulting Equipe de France

Thanks ... this is a great outcome for myself because I support both the French and the All Blacks As for our press, we have learned a long time ago to ignore them, we call it the "granny Herald" - they are idiots no matter what they report.

P.S. it was great to see all the foreign visitors (including the French) dressed in their National colours carrying NZ flags and painting All Blacks on their faces - the support we had was HUGE - a very nice gesture indeed

Some pics taken in and around the City Centre on the 16th of October 2011, it was a beautiful day with lots of jovial people around. There was also 3 cruise ships in the harbour which added to the International flavour - enjoy the pics folks:

No shit, there will be more Premier League games played on the opening weekend so it's natural that more people will attend.
