BNZ Crusaders vs Highlanders

The BNZ Crusaders take on the Highlanders at the Southbridge RFC in this annual pre-season match.

The Farmlands Cup is now a permanent part of the pre-season between both teams, and alongside the glory of winning the Farmlands Cup, the winning team will also present $5,000 to their charity of choice - thanks to the Farmlands Co-operative. The Farmlands Cup is all about supporting our rural rugby fan base, and with Crusaders legend Dan Carter starting his rugby career at Southbridge, we hope to inspire the next generation of Crusader legends!

Expect both teams to be at full strength for this match, as the 2019 Super Rugby Season kicks-off the following weekend!
