HOT NEWS - For the first time the All Blacks are scheduled to play at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome, which has a capacity of around 70,000. This will be the sixth different stadium the All Blacks have played at that has hosted the athletics programme of an Olympic Games, and the fifth that has hosted a FIFA World Cup final. The stadium has a storied history and is particularly memorable for New Zealanders, since it was here that Peter Snell (800m) and Murray Halberg (5000m) collected Olympic gold medals 45 minutes apart on 2 September 1960. It has also been the venue for the 1990 FIFA World Cup final, two European Championship finals, two European Cup finals and two UEFA Champions League finals, making it one of the most popular venues in Europe for big matches. This will be another famous ground that the All Blacks have played on simply because the team can draw enough to fill the larger capacity in these arenas.

All Blacks v Italy 2012 Have a look - Full Highlights 2012


I was away so have only seen the highlights of this game. And most of what I've read seems to have been pretty negative about the All Black performance. But, ultimately it was a 30 point win on the road, minus many stars, against a 6 Nations side ..... extending the All Blacks unbeaten run and 3 year reign as World #1. Surely our expectations for a perfect performance every time are more than a little unrealistic?


All Blacks are going great guns, what about the Black caps


The Ab's can't win. NZers expect them to win by 1000 points every game otherwise we'll ring 2ZB and have a whinge. I enjoyed the game on Sunday and thought Italy were a half decent team but just weren't good enough to play for 80 minutes. Can wait for this weeks game, Wales will but tough for 30 minutes and then puff the majic dragon will run out of fire. AB's by 1000!!!!!!!!!!!! hehehehehehe or I'm ringing talkback!
