Davo's venue guide

SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES
Telstra Stadium

  • Capacity: 83,500
  • Home team: n/a
  • Other info: Was known as Stadium Australia as the home of the Olympics

  • I'm not opposed to a few tinnies before a match, but you need a gameplan - and this place is no exception.

    No more than 30 minutes from Sydney's Central Station, you can slide a couple of cool ones down your throat in the city before jumping on the train.

    Trust me, it's your best bet for pre-game bevvies because Homebush isn't exactly renowned for its quality watering holes.

    I should know. I spent three dry hours tryin' to get out of the place three years ago when the All Blacks beat us 39-35 in that thriller.

    It only took our mob three years to build the stadium. Perhaps the Poms should get them in to sort out Wembley.
