Not bad but could be better

Central location but parking an issue. Stands don't offer much shelter if seated close to the pitch.

Great atmosphere and inexpensive tickets make visiting for a local match well worth while. The All Blacks regularly play here but you will probably need to buy those tickets in advance

Am a regular attendee at rugby matches . The venue l think is first class, a great looking pitch with great drainage . Overall well worth the big spend of a few years ago to get it to this high standard.

A great 25,000 seat stadium that doesn't have a bad seat. Well organised staff that gets you in and out very fast
