Crusaders to play Blues in Timaru

5:12 pm on 20 April 2011

Timaru will host the Crusaders Super Rugby local derby with the Blues on June the 11th after Alpine Energy Stadium was confirmed as the venue for the match with Christchurch's AMI Stadium out of action.

The Crusaders Coach Todd Blackadder says the atmosphere during the Crusaders 27-nil victory over the Bulls on April the 9th was electric and a similar reception would be a big boost against the Blues.
