Davo's venue guide

PERTH, WESTERN AUSTRALIA
Subiaco Oval

  • Capacity: 43,000
  • Home team: West Coast Eagles FC
  • Other info: The ground is set to be renamed Crazy John's Stadium

  • Way out west, Soo-Bee Oval (as the locals call it) will be full of Sandgropers for the five matches held here - if the Australian Rugby Union has its way.

    Rugby's bigwigs see the Aussie Rules-following Western Australia area as a growth state for the egg game, and Soo-Bee as the flower pot.

    Not that I'd try to grow anything there - the ground is as hard as a rock and it hasn't rained for eons.

    But I'm sure they'll turn the taps on in time for England v South Africa, the match of the pool stage.

    Fixtures
    11 Oct: South Africa v Uruguay (Pool C)
    12 Oct: England v Georgia (Pool C)
    15 Oct: Samoa v Uruguay (Pool C)
    18 Oct: South Africa v England (Pool C)
    19 Oct: Georgia v Samoa (Pool C)
