Changes to Crusaders and Canterbury Rugby Administration

Crusaders and Canterbury Rugby today announce a change to their management and reporting structures.

Hamish Riach is appointed CEO of the Crusaders and will be directly employed by the Crusaders.  Previously he was employed by the Canterbury Rugby Football Union (CRFU). Riach continues with many of his responsibilities as CEO of the CRFU (via a contract agreement with the Crusaders) but without responsibility for the community game. His focus will now be very much on the professional and business side of the sport.
