The Ranfurly Shield is back in Canterbury!

The Log o’ Wood is home!

The Ranfurly Shield, also referred to as the Logo’ Wood and regarded as the greatest prize in New Zealand provincial rugby, is back in Canterbury! Our team beat Wellington 36 -14 to bring the Log o’ Wood home after a break of 2 years.

We went to Christchurch airport to congratulate our boys on a job well done (see photos and TV3 news clip) and got hold of the Shield for a while.

Now it’s our boy’s job to keep the Shield in Canterbury for as long as possible.
The first defence of the shield at AMI Stadium is against Otago on Sat. 12 Sept. followed by Taranaki on Fri. 18 Sept., Northland on Sat. 26 Sept. Manawatu on Fri 9 Oct. and finally against Southland on Thu. 22 Oct.

AMI Stadium is easy to get to from CentrePoint on Colombo Motel using either the Free Shuttle (approx 30 mins) or taxi (approx 10 mins) and after the game it’s just a short walk back into town to celebrate another Canterbury victory!

Book online to ensure your room to support either Canterbury or your own team!
