In­ter­est in world cup’s steadily build­ing

Eastern Courier - - OUT & ABOUT -

Tonga round­ing it out. Speak­ing of Tonga, there was plenty of com­mo­tion when many play­ers turned down the chance to play for the Ki­wis in favour of rep­re­sent­ing Tonga.

The Ki­wis v Tonga match is on in Hamil­ton, and tick­ets are fly­ing out the door, with one Ton­gan church group from Auck­land buy­ing 200 tick­ets alone. So if you’re hop­ing to get along to see a game that’s go­ing to have plenty rid­ing on it, you best get hold of a ticket as soon as you can.

The smartest thing you can do if you want to be at the Ki­wis v Samoa opener at Mt Smart Sta­dium on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 28, at 8pm, is to at­tend The Ki­wis Lunch the day be­fore at Eller­slie Events Cen­tre.

Tick­ets are $100, but as well as drinks, a buf­fet lunch, and the chance to mix and min­gle with the more than 50 Ki­wis who have in­di­cated they will be there, that also in­cludes a match ticket for Mt Smart.
