    Fiji making it makes a sellout semi very unlikely. Hopefully we can still push towards 35-40K. Not expecting a sellout in NZ. I'd be happy with 20K+.[/QUOTE]

    not sure NZ would have delivered a sellout either btw
    id of thought 40K
    about 30K would be a good result for the bati v aus

    Yep, heard the hymns, saw all the Tongan fans and the 47 Lebanese fans. It all looked fabulous; great you could make it!

    And it all came across great on TV … especially the close scores, fantastic tries and exciting finish … I could barely take it ! :) Then another cracker Fiji v NZ (which despite the appalling crowd at Wellington for a NZ home game still came across great on TV; the crowd again was very vocal).

    Go RLWC 2017 ! Imagine how good it would be with competent organisers!!!

    We’ll be playing in a shiny new joint in the CBD in 2 years time. $100mil of its finance supplied by the federal gov. All of NQ would like to thank you for your tax contributions towards our new home, it will help the cowboys stay at the top of the rugby league tree.

    You uselss green merkins will still be viking clapping out in the boon docks asking for stadium scraps from your GWS/AFL loving member.

    When JT wants a new stadium, he gets it. When Ricky wants something, he gets a $10k fine.

    Canberra stadium is hardly state of the art. Give me Newcastle stadium over Canberra stadium any day even if having a hill makes us 'bogan filth'.

    Edit: damn that mobile grammar!

    C’mon Dave, if your town wasn’t colder than a witches tit in winter, you’d have hills. It might be an all seater but the 5 times I’ve been to games there, its always been a bucket of shit. The west side lower bowl has zero rake which results in a rubbish view and the end stands are a long way from the dead ball line. The east side is pretty good, I’ll give you that.

    And bogans? Child please, you got ya fair share as well!!

    But we’re Aussies, we’re all bogans at heart.

    but we ascended from the 1970s & out grew hills in our stadiums long ago
    our bogans now sit on seats
    theres a rumour they use cutlery too when eating

    its just a rumour tho : )

    That means roughly 45,000 for the 4 semis, barely passable .

    Takes us to roughly 280,000 For the tournament so far. So no way are we going to hit 400,000, more likely around 375,000 (still being optimistic even with that!) which is 75,000 below target, which in any language is unacceptable!

    It may have been seven years ago but ChCh is still very much a city in recovery. I think they have higher priorities than a rugby stadium.

    theres no higher priority then sport
    nothing gels or unites a community , certainly the size of Christchurch , more like their sport , their sporting institutions.
    I think its about time to build a stadium again, a rectangle stadium for the city . similar to dunedin it would be a huge , massive ... boost to the city & it would further assist in its recovery
    thats my opinion though

    Hard to say.....rugby league is at an all time low in NZ....especailly after the fall out from last night. But the Tonga movement is unlike anything I have witnessed before....

    I just hope they are willing to snap up the tickets...but at the unbelievable cost who knows.

    I know people on here are disappointed on the NZ crowds for this weekend, but I am honestly surprised between them we got 20,000. It's a good improvement on previous international games here.
