Rugby schedule

Greetings!

We'll be in New Zealand for about 5 weeks (mid January- late Feb) and would like to take in a rugby match, but we're not familiar with the season or schedule. We will visit Invercargill on Feb 10. Any match that day?

Yes club rugby competition starts late march early April in most regions with likely 3-4 matches of pre season before that so suspect that won't be s problem. Nearer the time just check the relevant union's web site for draw or club contacts.

Do they play any Super Rugby games in Invercargill? If you get a chance Christchurch is the best place for Super Rugby atmosphere.

Sorry Zhuhai but I must strongly disagree! Dunedin or Wellington are the places to watch Rugby. The whole city hums when a game is on. The after match atmosphere in Courtnay Place or the Octagon leaves anything else wanting!

However, the Highlander do play home games in Invrercargil once or twice a year.
