It looks like ass. Then again I live in Wellington so I don't care too much and we already have the only proper stadium in the whole country. (I'm being a bit of a jackass).

agree. i think this eden park mess has damaged chance for any more major international events for NZ. perhaps if christchurch holds the final in a half decent stadium, we might save face - and chc will at least get a half decent pop at bidding for the commonwealth games.

Guys the final is going to be played at Eden Park - no matter what shitty stadium is finally delivered.

You would be better off targeting the abysmal leadership of this country that let this crap happen in the first place.

Maybe they could put up some party balloons to cheer it up a bit?

i really thought that the country's passion for the sport of rugby would be reflected in their investment in great world class venues.

Is it too late to get John Banks back? At least he thought big.

Banks thought big but he also thought stupid. Hundreds of millions of dollars so that people in Pakuranga can get to work quick. I'm glad they canned the eastern motorway.

Yeah Banks was stupid. Pre-election he promised to have the motorway network completed by 2007. Instead he went off on his pet project with Sir Barry and ended up only spending 10s of millions in studies and consultants fees.
Ironically the Eastern corridor is not dead at all. Infact the ACC has released a large scale development of the road corridors in that area. The big difference being that the current strategy is that of tackling several routes in a combined project rather than a single expressway.

NZ Cricket snubs Eden Park and Jade Stadium for summer tests

NZ cricket has released their 2007-08 summer schedule. Some regular venues miss out on test cricket, namely Eden Park, Carisbrook and Jade Stadium. There are 5 tests for the summer Bangladesh playing tests at University Oval Dunedin (not Carisbrook!!!) and Basin Reserve, England play tests at Seddon Park, Basin Reserve and McLean Park.

If this is not the go-ahead for NZ rugby to develop Carisbrook, Eden Park and Jade Stadiums for rugby-only formations, then I am very confused! NZ cricket are moving first-class cricket to traditional cricket-only grounds similar to Basin Reserve and other English cricket grounds. This means fewer capacity, but better grounds for cricket and rugby in the future.

Perhaps hello Hagley Park Oval for the new home of Canterbury cricket...What do you guys think about this latest schedule by NZC?

This has been the case in Dunedin for a little while now. The new stadium proposal has no allowance for cricket (thank goodness).
Time to re-do Westpac Stadium for rugby/football only, and Eden Park.

I agree completely. I have said before in post and said as part of my submission to the CHC city council on the Hagley Park consultation that Hagley oval should be developed into a international cricket ground fitting for the sport and city! 2 years ago there was a lot of talk about developing a new international cricket ground, close to the new southern motorway and developments planned for the city.

I hope this spurs something on. Jade and Eden Parks are NOT cricket grounds.
