Christchurch SteinlagerSeries Test a sell-out     14 Jun 2012    

The World Champion All Blacks will run out in front of a sell-out crowd in Christchurch for the second of the Steinlager Series Test matches against Ireland this Saturday.

Tickets for this weekend's Test match have sold out ensuring that AMI Stadium (Addington) will be heaving with a capacity crowd of 21,000 to celebrate the return of Test rugby to Canterbury.

The third and final Test of the Series in Hamilton next week, is also on track to be a full house with just 1,200 tickets remaining.

New Zealand Rugby Union Chief Executive Steve Tew said the All Blacks were looking forward to playing their first match in Christchurch since the Bledisloe Cup Test match in August 2010.

"The Stadium is looking great with the new and larger temporary stand, and the boys are pleased to be here. With many of the All Blacks hailing from Christchurch, this match will represent something for the team."
