All Blacks visiting Christchurch too

7:34 pm on 17 September 2011

The All Blacks will arrive in Christchurch on Saturday afternoon for a three-day visit.

They will make a number of public appearances starting on Sunday with a "Stand in Black" event at Centennial Park next to Pioneer Stadium.

Christchurch is not hosting any Rugby World Cup matches because of the earthquake on 22 February. The city was supposed to host seven games.
