The Great Rugby Road Trip seeks to encourage support of rugby and to say “thank you New Zealand” for your part in the successful hosting of Rugby World Cup 2011 and the winning of the Webb Ellis Cup by the All Blacks.

The 58 day rugby tour includes over 40 community events in towns around New Zealand, and it's Palmerston North's turn! A range of trophies, including the Webb Ellis Cup, and rugby activities will take centre stage as the Great Rugby Road Trip visits all Provincial Union regions.

During the day fans will also be able to enjoy a range of fun rugby activities for the whole family. Obstacle courses, passing targets, timed sprints and many other rugby related activities will all be available for everyone to have a go.

Plenty of prizes will be up for grabs, including Investec Super Rugby jerseys and an all-expenses paid All Blacks weekend test experience!

There will also be a Rippa Rugby tournament on display, club rugby sign-up opportunities and the launch of the new and exciting Turbos membership programme!
