Western Springs upgraded By SCOTT MORGAN International rugby stars from Samoa and Tonga are set to descend on an upgraded West- ern Springs Stadium later this year for the Rugby World Cup. The teams will use the Pon- sonby Rugby Club's home ground as a training venue dur- ing the tournament, with new lights, turf and clubrooms installed to meet International Rugby Board standards. For Ponsonby director of rugby Bryan Williams there's a personal connection with his two sons Gavin and Paul likely to be named in the Samoan squad after playing for them last year. Hopefully one or both will make it. It's a special connection for me,'' the former All Black winger says. Ponsonby has got a number of Polynesian members, so to have our brothers coming down here to train is an exciting pros- pect.'' He says the club is proposing to have Polynesian evenings and other events during the cup. It should be a really exciting time for Ponsonby and the com- munity as a whole.'' With about 50 junior and senior teams last year, Pon- sonby is already one of the biggest clubs in Auckland. But Williams says that could increase further after the tour- nament. The evidence shows that in world cup years and years fol- lowing, the sport really grows in numbers. The area is certainly growing again with young families in Ponsonby, Grey Lynn, Westmere, Pt Chevalier and Mt Albert.'' Ponsonby teams and supporters will also benefit from the new facilities, with training under lights an option and big- ger clubrooms allowing more people into the venue for prize- givings. Mayor Len Brown told guests at the stadium opening late last year that the Tongan and Samoan teams had both visited Western Springs and were impressed with the facili- ties.
