An ab­so­lutely bril­liant venue that was too hard for the or­gan­is­ers to re­sist. Which they kind of should have as the tour­na­ment is in Eng­land and Cardiff is in Wales. But there you go. And they couldn’t re­sist be­cause the Mil­len­nium, which was built for the 1999 World Cup, has a re­tractable roof and is right smack in the mid­dle of the city. Cardiff is a rugby city and Wales is a rugby coun­try and the place will be buzzing for the World Cup. The noise at the Mil­len­nium will be deaf­en­ing and the at­mos­phere in­cred­i­ble. The All Blacks of course have played a quar­ter­fi­nal in Cardiff be­fore...but lets not go there.
