Fri 28th Aug - Night Before Battle:
Come and enjoy your last chance to state your allegiance the night before the battle over a drink with your friends and family.
Long time All Blacks journalist Jim Kayes will be hosting the night as our middleman and will make sure our special guests don't get too heated in battle and banter.
We have Mils Muliaina, the legend from the South but loyal to the North and Andy Ellis - a born and bred Southern man. With 128 All Blacks test between the two, we can't wait to hear the banter and who they think will be the new All Blacks Bolters to come from the North and the South.
We will also have the North and South coaches stop by to give us the inside scoop on their team selections and their picks on players to watch.
Sat 29th Aug (morning) - Game Day Groundies:
Just like all players, the best way to get yourself ready for the battle ahead is a pre match trip to the ground to have a walk around and shake off the last minute nerves.
We have secured an exclusive tour of Eden Park the morning of the test to help you prepare for the night ahead and get your head in the game.
Eden Park also known as the All Blacks ‘Fortress’ is rich in NZ rugby history and has seen many great battles in its time. You will have a guide take you through the park to places not often seen by the public and hear a few legendary tales from the past.
Sat 29th Aug - Vantage Point:
At all battles you always need a vantage point of the battlefield! We'll make sure you get a great vantage point of the Fortress Eden Park, so you won't miss one moment of the action.
We have two epic battles taking place for your enjoyment, with the Farah Palmer Cup curtain raiser to get us into battle mode before the big battle.
