Now that is a more than worthy reason. However, if England were in the final and I was in Auckland I would go AWOL from all my responsibilities and head down to the Cake Tin. Lightweight
In all seriousness, a Kiwi mate of mine has a ticket for me if I can get down. Way too far to drive as I need to be back in Auckland at 0930hrs on the Sunday so quietly enquiring on flights... sure my boss won't be happy if I can arrange it but hopefully won't have to go AWOL if we get there...
Not seen any yet myself. Don't know if their will be any TBH with the time it starts as I highly doubt any non RL fans will get up especially to watch it but we can hope. Their will probably be an odd comment about it being on nearer the time but with it being on BBC 2 I wouldn't hold my breath lol.
Timings shouldn't really play a part in if they promote the game or not in my opinion... they are showing it so should promote it.
No it won't. We shouldn't be frightened of such things. We can't spend our whole existence contriving our sport and hoping to sell it sugar coated. If Wellington couldn't get a big crowd regardless of finalists then it shouldn't have been given the final.
However, it should have been in Auckland simply because I am in the city that day and can't get down to Wellington...!
