Kiwi sides gear up for 2013 Investec Super Rugby pre-season

super2013Next weekend the Crusaders and Hurricanes kick off proceedings for the 2013 Investec Super Rugby season, playing at Alpine Stadium in Timaru in what will be the first clash between New Zealand Conference sides this year.

The matches, pre-season fixtures for the competition, are not official Super Rugby or SANZAR matches, and factors such as disciplinary issues, potential broadcasting schedules and match conditions (duration and number of breaks) will be organised by the hosting unions.

The early matches may be without All Blacks, although plenty of Test players are already back with their franchises, notably Blues captain Ali Williams and Hurricanes hooker Dane Coles.

Demanding pre-season training, from the Chiefs coast-to-coast runs to the Hurricanes near legendary surf swim training, through to all franchises engaging their fans as the season rushes towards us, will now give way to action on the field.

It is now 19 days until season kick off.

The first round, kicking off with the Australian Conferences in action only, will see New Zealand and South African sides continue to play pre-season matches.
