Nearly 20,000 people attended the Fanzone, on the South Lawn, ahead of the two Olympic Stadium clashes which saw France beat Romania and New Zealand defeat Namibia.

The Fanzone was only open to ticket holders before the matches, but this weekend is open to all members of the public.

Fans can watch matches live on the big screen, enjoy musical entertainment and test out their rugby skills.

All Blacks legend Jonah Lomu will also be in the Fanzone tomorrow between 3pm and 5pm to meet fans and sign autographs.
