New Zealand launch Super Rugby jumpers
December 12, 2013
New Zealand's Super Rugby franchises launched their jumpers with a spectacular display of giant jerseys across the country on Friday to mark the first day of replica sales. Highlanders fans finally got the opportunity to see their team's giant jumper hanging from the Octagon in Dunedin on Thursday, six days late, after freight issues on the Cook Strait Ferry delayed delivery of the promotional material.
