Carter to christen new posts
Christchurch - Crusaders flyhalf Dan Carter will mark a major milestone in the journey to bring the Crusaders back home on Friday, by kicking the first ball over the goal posts at the new Christchurch Stadium.
According to the allblacks.com website
, with just nine days to go until the first Super Rugby game at the new stadium, it is nearing completion.
The turf is down, seating is in, lights have been tested, and field markings are in place.
The installation of the goal posts on Friday is another major step towards the Crusaders having a home stadium again. Carter will join construction staff at the stadium to help guide the goal posts into position, and will then do the honour of kicking the first ball over the posts.
When the Crusaders take on the Cheetahs on March 24 it will be their first game in Christchurch since May 2010.
