Logical and reasoned predictions for the Rugby World Cup - C'mon Geekzoner's put in your views / picks and thoughts!

I'll start things rolling:

1. All Blacks by 35 versus Tonga tonight.

2. Bitomart disaster (unfolding as I type)

Go the All Blacks!!!!

What do you mean britomart? Do you mean Aucklands 3rd world rail system. That is a disaster.

I feel that it largely Aucklands thing. I cringe everytime I see Eden park, huge cost for an fugly stadium in the burbs. Would have been better to build a brand new one out at Albany.

It's a waste of taxpayers' money if you ask me, and last night was a complete fiasco.

DjShadow: I'm wondering how the mobile networks are holding up with so many ppl in the CBD at the moment


I was on 2 degrees and didn't have an issue down at the waterfront with reception and calls.

On the other hand the compete lack of crowd control was very dangerous.

Was on telecom and didnt notice any issues.


Fully agree with openmedia  about crowd control, it was just not there, I was down on Quay st watching on the big screen, felt like town was closed and it was a free for all to go and do as you please.

First time I used our public transport in about 6 years, wont be using it for another 6 years either, what a joke.

But I look forward to the rest of the cup.

Auckland doesn't have a 3rd world railway system - from my experience one thing many 3rd world countries have is a reliable railway system, in part because it's the only way people can get around. Smile
