Tasmania's York Park, a spoonerism nightmare, has a colourful history.
First a swamp and then a rubbish tip, it is now a venue which will host any sport so long as the price is right.
For the first time, international rugby will take centre stage at the stadium during the World Cup.
This is great news for the sport-thirsty but deprived populace of our friends at the broken foot of Australia.
Mind you, they'll only get to see one game: Namibia v Romania.
Locals have been urged to back one team or the other - those born on an odd day should turn out in Namibia colours, even days for Romania. Strewth!
York Park has a playing field larger than the Melbourne Cricket Ground, so there'll be plenty of places to hide if someone has a shocker in the match.
