The chaos of the Rugby World Cup's opening night appears not to have deterred crowds from Auckland's waterfront this afternoon.

Newstalk ZB's Tim Dower is at The Cloud and says it is almost at capacity.

He says families are enjoying the calmer atmosphere ahead of this afternoon's game between Argentina and Romania.

"What we're seeing is a friendly and warm atmosphere, it's the sort of thing that makes you proud to be part of New Zealand."
