Just because it has a roof doesn't mean its not cold and windy. Apart from that though a great rugby venue, good seats all round and a great atmosphere with a full crowd.

Had a great rugby themed function hosted there where all the food was themed to rugby nations from around the world. Service and staff were good and facilities and amenities top notch.

Great night watching the AB's beat the Ozzie's! Awesome seats, best place to watch rugby bar none! Close to action, easy to get in and out, and you've got to try the pies!

Great undercover stadium, we’ve been to a fair few rugby games here, the last one being on Saturday for the All Blacks v Wallabies. Good view wherever you sit. Easy walk from town and some games provide buses. We have yet to attend a concert...More

Watched the Bledisloe cup here. It is a great stadium as it is covered and gives protection from the cold. Easy walk from the city centre.
