I'm not a fan of ANZ as a rugby stadium. The convertible nature compromises too much.

So everyone will just post pictures of every single stadium in the world that has hosted a rugby game. Goody.

I thought it would more be only regular or interesting grounds that hosted games (and people considered their favourites).

Can't find any online. I'll have to wait until a match to take some as it's fenced in and guarded by a forest.

whatever about international but you just cant beat thomond park for a club rugby stadium, the place is the most intimidating place to play rugby, fact! munster only ever lost there once in the heineken cup since the tournament began!

[img]http://*************************/ireland/jpgs/thomond_park_redevelopment_mol180609_press22_1.jpg[/img]



the final one epittimises what thomond park is all about..sheer intimidation!

Thomond Park has a capacity of 26,500 but the City of Limerick only has a population of 52,000 (90,000 if for metro). How does that work? Is the stadium ever full?
