"In Melbourne there were more empty seats than people watching the Wallabies - and that in 'the city of sport'.
That's because we have large stadiums Grist. In fact, in this wonderful city of ours we have a couple of fabulous 80,000 seat stadiums, a couple that will cope with 30,000 and more than a few that will handle with 20,000 plus.
Which of course is very different to South Africa where there isn't a single city that can offer such a selection. Nor can they offer the quality of stadium. Nor the wonderful lifestyle.
You can however go to a game of rugby in J'burg and still get mugged, car jacked or better still, shot.
I doesn't really matter what quality of rugby your country plays Grist, the joint is still a shithole.
Have a wonderful, safe day. Which you probably will, because you reside here.
