Celebrate the Return of our Crusaders! PDF Print E-mail

March 2012


It is with great anticipation that we look forward to RUGBY AT HOME this weekend. What a trying time we have all gone through.

Let’s all CELEBRATE and how better than to support our team the mighty Crusaders at the first real Home Game in a long time.

We have gone through some dilemmas finding a new home for the Supporters Club.  However we have  facilitated a trial run this weekend in the Southern Concourse of the CBS Arena close to Christchurch Stadium.

What an occasion it will be. Rugby and a Supporters Club in Christchurch! We are also inviting the Cantabrians to come and join us. Will be great to
see them all again.

Doors open at 6pm Closing prior to game at 7.15pm

Dick Tayler will start proceed
Open again after the game – last drinks 10.30pm closing at 11pmngs and welcomes at 6.30pm
