It was fantastic to see a fully packed (like they say, to the rafters) Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium for last Saturdays Springboks vs All Blacks match. As I have posted before, an absolutely amazing experience. The majority of the South African supporters were dressed in green while there were patches of black in the crowd wearing the traditional New Zealand colours.
From what I have been able to get off the internet it seems that the official crowd attendance for the match was 45478 people. After this match I hope this the South African Rugby Union sees how hungry Port Elizabeth is for top class and international rugby and that we will hopefully get more international test matches right here at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.
