Fans on return of rugby in New Zealand

first_img SUBSCRIBE TO US Last Updated: 13th June, 2020 15:39 IST Fans On Return Of Rugby In New Zealand A capacity crowd packed the Forsyth Barr stadium in  the New Zealand city of Dunedin on Saturday to welcome the return of professional rugby, three months after the sport’s professional tournaments were shut down by the coronavirus pandemic. A capacity crowd packed the Forsyth Barr stadium in  the New Zealand city of Dunedin on Saturday to welcome the return of professional rugby, three months after the sport’s professional tournaments were shut down by the coronavirus pandemic.At 22,000 it was a small crowd but momentous for New Zealand and for rugby, as fans returned to stadiums without restrictions for the first time since the COVID-19 outbreak sent countries around the world into lockdown in March.Almost 20,000 tickets had been sold before the opening match in Super Rugby Aotearoa between the local Highlanders and the Hamilton-based Chiefs, and walk-ups filled the stadium to its capacity of 22,800 before the kick off.University students in the South Island college town were pressed shoulder to shoulder in the enclosure reserved for them and locally known as The Zoo.There were no restrictions on physical contact. Fans could hug, high-five, congregate in groups before and after the match and fill public transport without wearing masks or social distancing.New Zealand has almost eradicated COVID-19 after shutting its borders and imposing an early and thorough lockdown. There are no active cases and New Zealand has recorded no new infections in 22 days.That made it possible for crowds to return to professional sport and they have done so with relish.A match between the Blues and Hurricanes in Auckland on Sunday is expected to have a crowd of almost 40,000, the largest for almost 15 years for a Super Rugby match in New Zealand’s largest city.The five-nation Super Rugby tournament, involving teams from Australia, Argentina, Japan, New Zealand and South Africa, was abandoned in March when restrictions on international travel and quarantine requirements made it untenable.Super Rugby Aotearoa involves New Zealand’s five teams playing each other home and away over five weeks.Australia will kick off its Super Rugby AU on July 3 and both countries are hoping to have international rugby back in September.

‘Witches’ gets stitches: Crew member stabs another in the neck in fight on Anne Hathaway’s film

first_imgPhoto by Karwai Tang/WireImage(LONDON) — “A fight over a teabag” was reportedly the cause of an on-set scrap that led one crew member to stab another in the neck on the set of an Anne Hathaway movie called The Witches. Perhaps not surprisingly, given the cause, the movie is being shot in Britain, according to The Sun.The victim was stabbed in a neck by another crew member wielding a box cutter, a common tool on movie sets. The perpetrator was arrested, and the victim rushed from Warner Bros. Studios in Leavesden, Hertfordshire to the hospital for treatment.There were around 100 crew members on the set at the time, and the incident caused a security lockdown, the paper reports.The Witches, the second adaptation of the Roald Dahl book of the same name, also stars Oscar-winner Octavia Spencer, Chris Rock, and Stanley Tucci.The movie, directed and co-written by Forrest Gump Oscar winner Robert Zemeckis and Emmy-nominated black-ish co-creator Kenya Barris, opens next year.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
