Surfing In Rugby Heaven

Rugby has just got more exciting with up-to-the-minute rugby news and information, games and prizes all available at the click of a computer mouse at Xtra's new rugby site.

ThereÆs detailed analysis of every Telecom Super 12 game, including individual player ratings. Xtra also hosts the 'Ultimate Game' - an online competition based on these statistics, allowing visitors to select their own dream team.

There's also the chance to ask famous All Black's that burning question, with All Black stars like Josh Kronfield and Tana Umaga online for up to an hour each week in real time chat sessions.

And for those who consider themselves rugby masterminds, the weekly rugby quiz will test their knowledge.

The new Xtra Rugby site will also feature well known commentators like John McBeth and Eric Young. There is also detailed content from Rugby News magazine, NZ Rugby World magazine, the Auckland Rugby Union, Grant Fox and of course, the inimitable 'Sports Girl' who offers a female's perspective on our national game.
