Even the Canterbury Rugby Union doesn't know their team is playing Album


Rugbygirl wrote last week what a disgrace it was that Sky Television never mentioned once during the two Men's NPC Semi Finals the Women's NPC Final, whilst they mentioned and put up on screen details of all the Men's Finals a number of times.

Yesterday the Canterbury Rugby Union e mailed,to all Canterbury rugby supporters, the Men's NPC Final was being played at AMI Stadium starting at 7.35 pm.There was no mention the curtain raiser was the Women's NPC Final between the 11 times Champions Auckland, who had in its team 9 Black Ferns, a French International and a Samoan international and their own team Canterbury who only lost 10-7 to Auckland in pool play after leading for most of the game and who are in the final for the fifth time and aiming for their first title.

We think with the game kicking off at 4.35 pm and finishing around 6.00 pm, leaving a 90 minute wait until the Men's Final start at 7.35 pm is ridiculous enough but not to think the game is worth telling Canterbury people that it is being played and the Canterbury girls' need your support, is a real insult to these top women rugby players and the Canterbury Rugby Union's Management and Marketing people should look at things like this as to why the people going to watch Canterbury play are so far down on the numbers they expected.
