Venerable old stadium that hosts some great rugby matches. The stadium itself is getting dated and could do with an upgrade in the general seating. Boxes are goop class, though.

The Stadium is steeped in a Chequered history. The locals are very knowledgeable and many locals support the visiting team , especially teams from New Zeeland. Makes for very vibrant atmosphere.
