The Irish have four provincial teams. Munster rugby play at Thomond. The province has over a million people.

its true that the matches are generally on at different times, a few weeks ago tho there was a heineken cup match in thomond park at the same time a replay was on in the gaelic grounds and eventhough there was only around 10thousand in the gaelic grounds the north side of the city was at a standstill for hours because the 26,500 people were leaving thomond the same time kickoff was on the gg!

I dont know about that survey. While it looks like a nice stadium aesthetically, it doesn't seem too good for rugby, look how far away you are from the sideline. Cricket and rugby fields should be seperate. How big is cricket in Wellington, does the ground sell out often?

Survey was done nationwide, and was voted the best in New Zealand. It's perfect for sports like rugby. It's held the IRB 7's world series for 10 years and Pheonix football games in the A-league. If anything its abit to small for cricket, still a great multi-purpose stadium.

The playing surface itself looks roughly the same size as the Sydney Cricket Ground so I think it might be perfect for cricket. Only problem? No hill area

Twickenham is ultra impressive IMO, so imposing. And it fits the bill as a rugby only stadium.

Twickenham is massive, Rugby only, and is the home of rugby. It's the best for me.

Halliwell Jones Stadium, Warrington, England
Warrington Wolves (SuperLeague)

TBH I hate the stadium... Looks like a warehouse from the outside and shares a carpark with a Tesco... but I love the team!

COME ON THE WIRE!!!
