A crowd of 10,000 is expected 

That's actually better than some of the predictions I've heard! To be fair, if they can push past 10,000 for a test being played in NZ, at exactly the same time as the all blacks are playing in a RUWC semi, they haven't done too terribly. The last time GB Lions toured, a 10k plus turnout for a test against Tonga would've been no chance... So there's my glass half full take.

You can’t see it but this is me doing my “I’m really surprised” face.

Did not know this was a um, Oceanic Cup game?

Yet the actual Oceania Cup game yesterday didnt have this logo, it had a generic NRL Test Match one.

Back in the 80/90s we'd get between 7k and 11k for GB v NZ Tests to give it positive spin. 

Based on context, 10k ain't a car crash.

In the 2017 WC New Zealand only got 12k for 2 of their home games.

Lovely bit of ignorance from Betts.

What did he say? I literally muted the sound when he was talking his voice makes my ears bleed and his opinions are worthless.

Niu (playing 5/8) has not yet made his first grade debut. Is making his international debut before NRL, wow.

You could say the same of most of the OZ/NZ players in Lebanon, Italy, Cook Islands, etc.
