Great night out and enjoyable rugby. Easy access to boot. The food was extremely disappointing. All deep fried and far from appealing. I wish they had some healthy options but alas not.

It's small (max 30,000 people), intimate, comfortable. We were in the covered seats, though, and there was quite a bit of wind. Most of the stadium is uncovered--good to know if rain is in the forecast.

Very modern and well laid out, it was full when we went and getting in and out was very easy. The usual fast food and beer outlets were well organised to handle large volumes of people in a short time.

Ok for rugby food but would be nice to have something hot and healthy. All the hot food was fried and healthy food was cold. Not so good on a winters night
