Crusaders stars break lock-down rules

Crusaders players among them All Blacks flyhalf Richie Mo’unga have been caught breaking New Zealand’s lockdown rules.

Mo’unga and a group of his teammates were filmed training at the team’s base in Christchurch on Monday morning. According to an eyewitness, the players were kicking and passing the ball to each other at the venue.

This is against the rules which allows only solitary training and not group training. 

“We’re all struggling through this lockdown. And none of us particularly want to be doing it, but we know it’s the best thing to do. I was disappointed before I realised who they were. They were looked at by everyone in the park, getting the side eye.” the eyewitness told Newshub.

Crusaders players were filmed by Newshub training together in breach of lockdown rules.

Crusaders Chief Executive Colin Mansbridge says they have communicated to the players and reminded them of the importance of not being in the same location.

“They shouldn’t have been at the same location. It wasn’t planned and they should know better. I have spoken to those involved, and will reinforce that again tonight.” he told Newshub.

Super Rugby was suspended three weeks ago following New Zealand decision to quarantine all people entering the country for 14 days.
