Rodney's Raw Hide Canterbury Tour

Rodney's Raw Hide Canterbury Tour

Get your dancing shoes on, Rodney Hide is coming to Canterbury.

This Thursday, ACT leader and competitor in TV One's current hit show, "Dancing with the Stars", Rodney Hide and his dance partner Krystal Stuart, arrive in Christchurch to drum up support for viewer votes.

Some may debate his dancing ability but you've got to give the former Cantabrian credit for his efforts in campaigning for votes or is there a hidden agenda in the timing of the Canterbury visit?

Rodney confesses he's a Crusaders supporter through and through, and is looking forward to catching up with some of the players after training on Thursday as the red and blacks prepare for this weekends final in Super 14.

Mr Hide will also be dancing in the Square and visiting his home town of Rangiora where the students of Rangiora High School will get to see both him and Krystal in action.

8am Rodney and Krystal dancing in the Square.
(Wet weather alternative location: South City Shopping Centre)

10-11am: Rodney and Krystal visit Rangiora High School.

11.30am: Rodney and Krystal meet Crusaders at Rugby Park.
(Media: Please liaise via the usual CRU channels if you are attending)
