Auckland's trains fail rugby fans

Auckland's trains failed last night to get people to the game on time. Special game trains to Eden Park arrived late to the the game, punters who were delayed told the Herald. A Connex spokesmen said "heavy passenger numbers had delayed two trains by 15 minutes" but "as far as we are aware" people got there on time. Who do you believe?

It seems the problem is the rail system just couldn't cope when more than six people tried to ride the trains at once...

Our friend at Slow Train Coming predicted trouble yesterday morning. So how many do you think will now try and use the trains to get to Saturday's game? Or at all?
