New Zealand apathy threatens Rugby World Cup

Only 38 days from the start of the Rugby World Cup, a survey shows more than one-third of New Zealanders are not looking forward to the tournament and another 29 percent are ambivalent.

The survey, conducted by UMR Research in June and July, polled 850 New Zealanders and found only 37 percent of respondents in this supposedly rugby-mad country are looking forward to the start of the tournament on Sept. 9.

A total of 35 percent say they are not looking forward to the event while 29 percent have neutral feelings.

The survey found 41 percent of respondents felt the Cup would be disruptive and 14 percent doubted all facilities would be ready on time.
