On the way to Eden Park I walked up Kingsland Avenue.
The Samoan family at the top of the road had the house
and themselves well prepared for the game.
I had not seen Eden Park in the day time. One regret was not doing an
Eden Park guided tour. O=Just inside the gate at the Walters Avenue
end are these two statues of two of New Zealand’s most famous
All Blacks. On the left is Dave Gallagher, known as the father of the
All Blacks, the captain of the 1905 ‘Originals’. To the right is
Michael Jones, scoring the first try at the first Rugby World Cup, back
in 1987. Jones would become one of the legends of the game.
