Boks a hit in Wellington

The Wallabies could not sell out in Christchurch, but the Boks have gone one better for their Vodacom Tri Nations visit to Wellington next weekend.

It has been reported that just a 1000 tickets remain for the test and these are expected to be sold in the week. 12 000 public tickets went on sale three weeks ago and they sold quickly.

In the Tri Nations opener in Christchurch, 2300 tickets were unsold. Then again, the Vodacom Super 14 final between the Crusaders and Hurricanes was also not a sell-out, which tells you more about the support base in Christchurch than it does about them being swayed by the quality of the opposition.
