Auckland's Captain Cook Wharf is on standby today and rugby revelers will be able to drink if it's called into service.

The back-up to Queens Wharf was opened to the public for the first time last weekend during the All Blacks' clash with France.

But there was no liquor licence, this has now been arranged.

Captain Cook opens from 2.00pm tomorrow for the NRL Grand Final, and in time for the kick-off for the All Blacks' game against Canada.
