The Bledisloe Cup Test match will go ahead in Wellington on Saturday, after Westpac stadium got the all-clear to re-open after being inspected for earthquake damage.

It closed for checks following a magnitude 6.6 earthquake on Friday.

Stadium chief executive Shane Harmon said it's a huge relief to have it confirmed the game will go ahead.

He said the quake damage comprised small concrete chippings and a lot of broken glassware, which will be cleaned up throughout the week.
