The Telecom Super 12 trophy returns to Canterbury, and a victory parade will be held on Monday, 27 May, where families and fans will see the Crusaders up close, with an appearance by the Canterbury Crusader Horses adding extra excitement.

“Monday will be an opportunity for Cantabrians to come out in their thousands to celebrate this Super 12 victory, “ says Christchurch Mayor Garry Moore.
