Tomorrow sees the second match of the Iveco Series 2008
Latest preparations are in hand for the second match of the "Iveco Series 2008" to be held tomorrow in Auckland, New Zealand. In the splendid arena of Eden Park the All Blacks will challenge the runners up to the world championships, England, in the first match of this contest for the Stralis Cup.

It will be the first real challenge for the All Blacks this season, last Saturday they challenged and won (21-11) Ireland in Wellington being awarded the Eurocargo Cup. The New Zealand squad, captained by Richie McCaw, had their work cut out due to the adverse weather conditions that, against worthy opponents, were not able to realise their full potential in the difficult situation.

Tomorrow evening with forecast dry conditions the All Blacks will have to take on very determined opponents, England, wanting to avenge the defeat (41- 20) suffered in London in November 2006, the last occasion in which these teams met.

Also this time, Italian rugby fans will be able to follow the fortune of the All Blacks on Sky Italia that will transmit the match live. At the same time it will be possible to follow the match on Rugby Radio, the first web radio station dedicated to rugby, that transmits continuously, 24-7 music programmes with intervals giving information about rugby, its history, its rules and information on Iveco products and initiatives.
