Hehee hee hee "had there way" get it!

Soweto is usually a soccer-crazy community, but on Saturday most of its residents stood in support of the rugby game, blowing their loud plastic horns known as vuvuzelas as the Bulls thrashed rival Stormers in an all South African final.

Houses close to the stadium opened up their gardens to fans, who were grilling sausages and drinking as if in their own homes. The residents were happy to receive them, saying they were curious about the fanatical Bulls fans.

"They should bring the games to other (black) areas, it's good for business and the fans feel welcomed here," said Mpumi Khubeka, who was selling beer from her front yard.

The Orlando stadium will be used as a training ground during the soccer World Cup and will host a 'Kick-Off Celebration Concert' on June 10. Organisers used Saturday's rugby game as a logistics test.

President Jacob Zuma and Archbishop Desmond Tutu attended the game, the first major rugby competition to be held in a township.

Zuma walked onto the pitch just before the game - as former President Nelson Mandela did at the 1995 Rugby World Cup final.
