A crowd of up to 40,000 people are expected to fill Eden Park for the triple-header opener of the women's Rugby World Cup tomorrow.

The event was delayed a year due to Covid-19, but now that it's finally happening it is set to be easily the biggest Women's Rugby event ever held.

World Cup organising committee chair Dame Julie Christie spoke to Susie Ferguson.
