2011 Rugby World Cup Day 5
It was an hour hike to the top. From the summit, there were spectacular 360 degree views of Auckland and the Hauraki Gulf Islands. The volcano has a fairly large crater.
Swedberg arranged a van to take the group to the evening's rugby team. We saw France versus Japan at the North Harbor Stadium. This stadium was about 30 minute drive north to the suburb of Albany. It was a very competitive game. With France leading by the score of 25 to 21 with about 10 minutes to go, they scored three quick trys to put the game out of reach and win by the score of 42 to 21.
