    Wellington is getting two All Blacks tests next year

    Wellington is getting two All Blacks tests next year


    New Zealand Rugby has announced Wellington as the venue for a test against Wales, and another against Australia.

    Westpac Stadium chief executive Shane Harmon says each test match injects up to nine million dollars into the local economy.

    He says it's important during winter to have a big boom for hotels, restaurants, and bars.
