WeatherWatch.co.nz says a southerly but mostly dry skies should be the set up for Wellington tonight as the All Blacks take on the Springboks at the Cake Tin.
WeatherWatch.co.nz says despite a low just to the east of Wellington conditions tonight are looking fairly good for rugby with a breezy southerly blowing and mostly dry skies. The weather news authority says while there is a risk of a shower the risk remains low with the rain bands well east of the city and the low now moving away to the east.
Any showers are expected to be brief and light.
Meanwhile the All Blacks are shutting out all the talk of a weakened South African side ahead of tonight’s test in Wellington.
The Springboks have controversially left 21 first string players at home for the away leg of the Tri Nations.
All Blacks captain Richie McCaw’s making sure his players aren’t taking the Springboks lightly.
“From our point of view we haven’t listened to that, that’s other people talking, we need to get our stuff sorted,” says McCaw.
Richie McCaw’s says while they do have an eye on the World Cup, the All Blacks are going out to win every test in the build up.
Kickoff’s at 7:35.
