The Wellington 7s used to attract a sell-out crowd.
This year numbers were well below that :
In past years, Wellington Sevens tickets sold out in minutes, but this year the crowd peaked at 18,000 in the 34,500-capacity Westpac Stadium.
That has opened an opportunity that Dunedin is keen to seize.
A Facebook page has been created and garnered more than 4,000 likes in a couple of days.
There’s a long way from there to winning the right to host the tournament but it’s an enthusiastic start.
