WOW ! What a party !!!! it has taken me two days to recover and I feel absolutely drained and relieved The French gave us a run for our money - well played France and nearly caused NZ a couple of heart attacks

Thanks for all the well wishes and it has been said that we will host the RWC again but who knows when. Now we can return to normal and get on with rebuilding Christchurch, transforming Auckland and The Hobbit

Congrats to NZ, but the referee made a bad penalty call towards the ending, when the french team was about to make, at least, a drop goal (in fact, they were about to make a try, considering they were dominating the whole NZ squad).

And oh, this referee was in all of the NZ knock-out games. I`m not saying NZ didn`t deserve the tittle, i`m saying in this particular game, France deserved most.

10,000 Eden Park seats bound for London

SCOOP 05:00 26/10/2011

Less than 24 hours after the All Blacks beat France on Sunday to win the Rugby World Cup, Eden Park's temporary seating was already being dismantled for a new home in London. The 10,000 seats, provided by an international events company, will host fans at London's Olympics next year. The seats, which were new when erected at Eden Park, ensured the venue had a capacity of 60,000 - an IRB requirement for stadia hosting major World Cup matches. Eden Park hosted 11 games during the tournament including both semis, the bronze match between Wales and Australia, and the weekend's nail-biting final.

General manager of sales and marketing Tracy Morgan says deconstruction of the seats, which began on Monday, will be complete by mid-December. She says there are no plans to extend permanent seating in Eden Park. "The capacity of the park is appropriate for the events we normally stage. Rugby World Cup was a unique event." She says the intention from the outset was that the seating would continue on to London. In the lead up to the tournament $240 million was spent upgrading Eden Park and increasing its seating capacity from 47,500 to 50,000. The next major event to be hosted by Eden Park will be when the Phoenix plays Adelaide United on November 19. It will be the first time the Wellington football team has played at the stadium.
