Watching Super rugby finals in Melbourne



  • Don't know Melbourne at all
    Staying on Lygon street. Won't be driving, so walking distance is best.
    Anyone know of some dead certs to have it on a screen at 11pm? Perhaps that's too late to properly see it?
    Just getting options in case hotel foxtel is the cheap version with no channel 502, I believe that channel might be extra?
    Thanks
    Ps it's anniversary night with the missus who I haven't seen for 2 months... and that, my friends is how you treat dem bitchez! sunglasses smiley, keyboard fucked
    high five M4L?



  • College Lawn in Prahran is always a good shout. About a 20 min uber from Carlton though. Close to late night bars on Chapel too.

    'ken oath bruss, priorities



  • been a while so no guarantees, but there used to be a couple that'd show the footy on smith st, not too far from you - the grace darling and father flanagans. melbourne is all afl though eh - the maori chief is a definite, and more likely to have a rugby crowd, but that's in south melb.



  • The Great Northern on Rathdowne St in Carlton North is showing both games.



  • Should be a few pubs around , main problem afl rules in most places , so if there is afl on at the same time good chance you won't get volume,
    College lawn and the Maori chief are 2 well known kiwi rugby hangouts . But not walking distance from Carlton .
    I live in Melbourne but Ironically I'll be watching it at the kiwi pub in Soi 8 nana . I'm sure you know the one .



  • My mates watched the Highlanders game at the Maori Chief last weekend. While, as mentioned above, it's not close to Carlton, an Uber can't be too expensive for a guaranteed watch?



  • probably bit over half an hour or so on the tram as well, no changes from memory.

    We've swapped places mate!



  • Thanks fellas
    Maori Chief visit might be explained to the missus as a cultural experience...
    Oh shit love I thought it was a museum. Still, while we're here....
