Good luck to anyone who tries to get decent accommodation at reasonable prices in Melbourne during the Melbourne Cup Carnival !!
Yes, and the Salford owner will more than likely be in Melbourne so great publicity for the international game.
Rewarding fans and taking the game to new areas is really taking off in Australia. I think Dunedin is a great place to have a test. Great for the south island to be able to see a test close to home, i have no doubt this should sell-out. Right time, right place at right time of the year.
Melbourne has to be the game of the series, must see event. We will have all the horse owners from over the world watching with interest, you cant buy publicity like that. Also the opening double header in Brisbane is being held 10 days after the G20 leaders of nations event.
So again, well done to the organisers for the planning of this event.
We have clean-air and lots of promotion time for this event.
At last we seem to have done something right.
