7th June, Eden park.
We paid 100 NZD each as we wanted seats undercover but there where cheaper seats if there are any left.
I know they are selling out because I went back for 1 more ticket 5 days later and could only get a seat 5 rows away from us.
Check ticketmaster website.

I'm going down to the Dunedin game. Good stadium as I saw Aerosmith there 2 years ago. Plus I travelled to watch Dan Carter destroy the Highlanders last season

I don't know what team England are bringing over but am looking forward to ye olde Swing Low, Sweet Chariot being sung.

The game in Auckland is likely to be a weakened team.

The weekend before is the Premiership final and any players involved in that game will not be made available for the Auckland test.

So should any two of Saracens (Vunipola x 2, Farrell, Barrett), Northampton (Hartley, Dickson, Burrell, Lawes, Wood) Leicester (Youngs x 2, Tuilagi) or Harlequins (Robshaw, Brown, Marler, Care) be involved, which is highly likely, there'll be players who normally would make at least the 23 will be missing.

Which ever way you look at it, England will be significantly weaker than they might be.

All can be replaced, but the lack of continuity from the Six Nations makes and already tough task much, much tougher.

On the other hand, whoever is put in place of those who are missing due to the Premiership final have a massive opportunity to stake a claim and not look back. George Ford at 10 and Ben Morgan at 8 spring to mind.

Should be interesting.

The plan is for all those fit enough and unscathed from the Premiership final and 1st test to be made available for the 2nd and 3rd tests.

We're going, not very far from us. I don't care what team they put out, it's just so awesome! We have been having discussions over who we will support. I said British forever but Mr M doesn't agree! I have told him his homework is to learn the NZ national anthem, in Te Reo and in English, before the game! I sing it every week at school!

Ha!!

To be fair, anyone with the inclination could have done a couple of google searches on this to come up with a similar analysis, but yeah, sport in general was my first love. Well, after a girl I knew called Katy Crow, but I digress.

I love my Rugby and have had the fortune to see England beat the All Blacks twice live (Nov 2002 and Dec 2012 both at Twickers).

I'll pop to Eden Park and possibly Hamilton too.

I'm disappointed that the Premiership Rugby, International Rugby and Super 15 calendars clash so that England hare essentially forced to send out a weakened team in the first test. You want to see the best teams possible for your 100 bucks each, you know?

Having said that, I'm a huge fan of Lancaster and really like his techniques, so I have utmost confidence in the fact that long term goals will be the focus.

One day I can see him in the same bracket as Sir Clive Woodward, Sir Alex Ferguson and Sir Dave Brailsford. Not just as a knight of the realm, but as someone who thinks with such scrutiny about the sport they're involved in on so many levels, they leave others behind in their wake.

Just to be clear at this moment...I'll be supporting England, closely followed by the All Blacks. It may depend if I'm surrounded at the time.
