And over in New Zealand...

Where Rugby is the King......

Reports saying that Wellington Phoenix have sold 25,000 tickets for the semi against the Jets which is still some ten days away.

If true, wonder how many fans will come and watch the All Whites take on the Aussies in the last game in Australia before the World Cup. Who knows how many Kiwi's will travel from Sydney, or NZ.

After all without the All Black fans the Bledisloe would rarely sell out in Australia would it?

And Wellington S14 Rugby team pulled in 17,000 for it's first game of the season, the next day the Nix pulled in 24,000 in the same stadium. Yep for football in NZ!

Interesting times to be a sports fan in New that Bin Hammam kick em out of the Dimetriou is talking to Hammam as we!

wellington S14 rugby pulled in just under 11,500 to be exact last weekend - a little less than half what the nix did the day after!

Wow thanks for the correction Brendan.

Would be very interesting to be a long-suffering football fan in that part of the world after that weekend.
