Keen rugby fans can soak up the atmosphere on the waterfront ahead of the All Blacks-Argentina game on Saturday.

The fan zone, set up on Wellington waterfront for last year's Rugby World Cup, is to re-opened for the Championship game.

The Taranaki Wharf fan zone will open at midday, and will feature face painting, New Zealand and Argentinian music, and an Argentinian-flavoured barbecue. However, there will be no large screen television.

At 5.45pm there will be parade to Westpac Stadium, accompanied by Wellington Batucada.

Argentinian rugby arrived in Wellington earlier this week and have had training sessions at the Hutt Recreation Ground.

The team is part of the new Rugby Championship and will take on the All Blacks at the Westpac Stadium on Saturday.

The Rugby Championship replaces the Tri-Nations, in which New Zealand, Australia, South Africa and Argentina play each other twice, once at home and once away, in the next two months. See photos page 22.
