  1. Anyone with a bit of time yet worked approximately how much it would cost to follow England (travel and accom) throughout this World Cup !
    The rugby world cup later 2021 in NZ lasts the same length of time (despite clear need for rest due to physicality), involves 12 teams not 8, and has almost the same number of matches (30 v 31).
    Interesting contrast in format.


  2. How big is the Hagley Oval? Surprised the final isn’t in Auckland or in Wellington (clashes with the Super rugby season?)

    From what I understand, travelling around New Zealand is difficult and quite expensive so following England would be tricky. How cool would it be to say you’ve been to consecutive World Cup finals on the opposite side of the planet?!
