Dunedin was buzzing when we got down there late yesterday afternoon and the city’s first rugby World Cup game was a success.
No-one got stuck on trains.
No-one we saw did anything they ought not have done.
None of the RWC volunteers, security people and police was anything but, friendly, polite and helpful.
The Otago Stadium didn’t disappoint the capacity crowd.
There were no long queues at the women’s loos (although the men did have a bit of a wait).
The crowd didn’t have any trouble dispersing when the game ended.
I didn’t say bugger (but only because I don’t know how to in Spanish).
In other sports news, the Nude Blacks didn’t win their game agaisnt the Spanish Senoritas (warning nudity).
The Spanish team had won a video competition for the right to challenge the Nude Blacks.
