With its glass roof, clear walls and close stands, Dunedin's Otago Stadium will provide England and Argentina with a novel experience when they play their first World Cup match on Saturday.
The most southerly professional rugby stadium in the world, the brand new Otago Stadium looks like a traditional four-sided ground except that it is completed enclosed in clear plastic _ protecting fans, players and the artificially strengthened turf from even the most foul weather conditions.
Both sides trained at the 30,000-seat venue on the eve of the match, with some players likening the environment to a giant greenhouse.
England team manager Martin Johnson says "when there's a crowd in there, the sound reverberates around."
