Jim Kayes of the Dom Post is all in a lather after the Rugby World Cup schedule was announced for 2011. It appears both semis and the final will play in the upgraded, purpose built for the occasion, Eden Park. In other words, Auckland will be getting the good games. 'Auckland hogs Rugby World Cup hosting!' Jim huffs away angrily. Meanwhile, the Stuff website angrily derides those naughty and selfish Aucklanders with a poll - that kind of highlights they haven’t found a good rugby story for a few days:
How do you feel about Auckland getting the major games of the 2011 Rugby World Cup?
2. They should be spread around more.
3. Makes sense
All I can say is – who cares - and more importantly - what loser would be gutted about this? It’s in 2011. Can we stop sniping at each other for even half an hour?! And wasn’t Auckland hosting the major World Cup games always going to be a no-brainer? Obviously not, for some factions of the gutted (and rather pathetic) New Zealand media.
