Sports points to ponder
en sports issues that have occupied my mind this year:
That has prompted one owner, Gareth Morgan, to push for a new stadium to be built in Petone.
It would seat 12,000 and be the Phoenix’s home ground.
Small crowds there would not look as bad as they do in the 35,000-seater at Westpac Stadium.
The answer isn’t to build a smaller stadium.
It’s to build a bigger following, which the Phoenix have begun to do with their fine recent form.
