In true No 8 wire Kiwi style, Tui Brewery is bringing the big game of Super Rugby back to the small town – Eketahuna.
The Eketahuna Rugby Club, which marked 125 years of rugby with jubilee celebrations earlier this year, will welcome the Hurricanes on *Saturday, January 31st 2015 when they take on the Crusaders in a Super Rugby pre-season game.
Daniel Roxburgh, Brand Experience Manager for Tui HQ, said January’s game will be a unique experience for fans and for the players.
“Tui has always championed bringing the big game of Super Rugby back to provincial New Zealand and next year will be no exception,” he said. “It’s also fitting that this should be announced when both Tui Brewery at Mangatainoka and the Eketahuna Rugby club are celebrating their 125th year.”
The game follows the success of four previous sold out pre-season games involving the Hurricanes franchise – three of which have been played at Mangatainoka, next to Tui Brewery, and the 2014 game played at Memorial Park in Masterton.

Purchase through PGG Wrightson Stores and at Tui HQ, SH2, Mangatainoka or buy online. Tickets are $40 for GA and $130 for Corporate. Kick-off is at 3pm and gates open at 12.30pm.
