Canterbury Crusaders Rugby

Christchurch, New Zealand

TigerTurf and the Crusaders make a great team! The TigerTurf Endurance 60 rugby surface has the all qualities needed by the tough, top-performing Crusaders.

The Crusaders play with a passion that’s deeply respected by their opposition. Post-earthquake, the Crusaders displayed their grit and determination to make Canterbury proud, despite appalling training conditions. But the local weather can cause problems for game preparation, solved now by the completion of a purpose-built indoor training area.

The new high tech indoor training facility at Rugby Park features TigerTurf Endurance 60, a turf designed and tested to meet premium performance standards, with IRB and FIFA accreditation.

The yarn used in this turf carries an unlimited play durability warranty, and it certainly needs to be durable!

The Crusaders will be spending hundreds of hours practising scrums, lineouts and passing on the new rugby turf, which was installed with a 10mm pad beneath the surface to absorb impact. The pad has been designed to accommodate the point-load impact from line-outs and scrums, avoiding stress injuries to hard-working players.

TigerTurf Endurance 60 is a long-pile grass turf, with non-abrasive blades that replicate the qualities of a real grass pitch, but warmer and drier! In the new training amenity, the team can train in consistent conditions, better able to focus on drills and instructions without the distraction of ambient noise, or that nor’wester Cantabrians love to hate.

Good move, team!
