Disappointingly I was not allowed to bring in my Canon 450D
No SLR's were allowed only compacts are permitted
so the photos in the stadium are all taken with my
Powershot SX20 IS
Long queues for drinks but there were some vendors outside
where you could get a drink in minutes
You can see the blue roof of Table bay Hotel
Quite different from when I was on my own here
some months ago
I was so excited to be in the stadium
I took 224 photos :)
So sad I could not properly capture it with my SLR
The atmosphere was terrific
Happy smiles all around
and no problems or rowdiness anywhere I could see or hear
A seat with a view
This was a goal !!!
Stormers hooker Deon Fourie ensured his name would feature in the history books by scoring the first try ever in the new stadium after 3 minutes and 35 seconds of play.
Remember you can click any image to see it high res
Our boys.. the home team
It was pretty warm but partly clouded
Table mountain was hidden in the clouds
At no time was Table Mountain out of the clouds
Such a pity..
Oh and this was a smoking area
There were several designated smoking areas around the stadium
Shame about the deep shadows cast on the pitch
even though the lights were on
A view to Signal Hill
Not all of the temporary seats are installed yet

A peek into the "Sausage den"
I was very disappointed not to be able to buy a glass of wine
but happy to see they sold Magnum icecream !
Schalk Burger, left the field in the first half with what looked like a shoulder injury.
Centre Paul Bosch also left the field with what looked like a broken arm and he is not likely to feature in the Super 14.
Sorry I did not catch you smiling at me
You looked allot better when you smiled :)
I walked around during the whole match
No rest to sit down !
It was my pleasure guys :)))
I luvvvv your happy smiles
Drop me a line if you want a copy
Its a great stadium
This is the opening I can see from my home
The Stormers won 47-13 after leading 18-13 at halftime.
Its all over and going home
There were 2 helicopters:
An ambulance and a police helicopter on stand by
The party in Hamiltons Rugby club is in full swing
Sitting there so pretty ...
