The SST reports:
POLICE will boost security for the USA’s first pool game in next year’s Rugby World Cup because it falls on the 10th anniversary of alQaeda’s deadly September 11 attacks in 2001.
Cup police operations head Superintendent Grant O’Fee said police had not been involved in the draw but were “aware of the significance of the date”, and might put in place “some different arrangements than we have for normal games”.
The pool game, against Ireland, will be played at New Plymouth’s Stadium Taranaki.
I might give that game a miss.
