Crusaders considering options for home games

3:10 pm on 7 March 2011

The Crusaders are weighing up a number of options of where to play their future Super Rugby home games if AMI Stadium isn't available.

The Crusaders home ground remains closed until at least March 15th pending further engineering assesment.

The Crusaders played last weekend in Nelson and will do the same this weekend against the ACT Brumbies.

Crusaders chief executive Hamish Riach says while they're keen to make home games available to their fans, they also have to consider the financial impact of playing at smaller grounds.

Matches in other New Zealand mains centres and overseas are being considered.

After this weekend, the Crusaders next home match is against the Sharks on March 25th.
