    Default Ozzies see sense......

    Common sense prevails in OZ. I hate to think what the 2011 games are going to cost the New Zealand taxpayer....

    The IRB is seeking an STG80 million ($A162.35 million) guarantee from the host nation for the 2015 event and STG96 million ($A194.82 million) for 2019

    It would have been cheaper for those that want to see the Games for the Rugby Union to pay for flights across the ditch and let Aussie host it.

    New stadiums etc etc etc it is going to cost us heaps and I hate sport, why should I be paying for any of it.

    has anyone noticed price actually increases for each tournament...therefore it was cheaper for us...

    i think nz will do fine with tourism dollars but its not like the tourism dollars go to NZRU...

    the main concern is.... I'd hate to think what'd happen if we lose the world cup final yet again...considering we lost in france and the country went up in arms....but now the all black team wont have the security of being out of NZ!....

    If we banned rugby maybe the ACC might get back into the black?

    NZ will lose millions on the Rugby world cup, Its a niche event with exorbitant costs hosted in the middle of meanwhile we are in the grip of a world wide recession.

    Hey what about the world cup before that? oh and the one before that....

    I must admit i went to Auckland two weeks ago and i can see why they need the extra money for roading from the petrol tax. there is some serious road working going on up there, phew. Actually this has nothing to with rugby doh!
