The Tasman Rugby Union and NBS announced that NBS will be the Union’s Major Sponsor. This incorporates sponsorship of the Tasman Makos and community rugby in the Region.
The Tasman Makos have received something of a back-handed compliment after all the second tier championship teams conspicuously tried to avoid playing them in next year's ITM Cup provincial rugby competition.
Tom Marshall has been released from the final year of his contract with Tasman Makos and will join Gloucester after the coming Super Rugby season.
The Tasman Makos have received further recognition for their impressive efforts this season with both captain Shane Christie and coach Kieran Keane named as finalists for this year's New Zealand rugby awards.
The Tasman Makos have begun consolidating their front-row resources with the signing of Bay of Plenty Steamers prop Kane Hames.
This is an outstanding opportunity to play a key role in the future of the Crusaders. Seldom do opportunities of this nature arise. A position description is available on our website www.crusaders.co.nz. Please email your application,in confidence, to Raylene.firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to Raylene Palmer, CRFU, PO Box 755, Christchurch by 5 December 2014.
