Could Sharks-Saders game be moved to London?

We’ve heard this rumour from enough sources now that there must be some shred of truth to it. The talk is that the Crusaders have approached the Sharks about the possibility of moving their 26 March fixture to Twickenham in London, after the recent earthquake in Christchurch rendered the AMI Stadium unusable.

The Crusaders Union have been avoiding planning too far in advance after the tragedy, opting to play their first two post-quake home games in Nelson. That stadium is far too small to be a permanent base for them, though, as the diminished gate takings will hit them hard at a time when they need funds more than most. A speculative story appeared on Sky Sports a few days ago suggesting that the English RFU has approached the New Zealanders about the prospect of hosting a Crusaders home game in London, thus appealing to the large expat rugby following in the UK as well as offering a number of great fund-raising opportunities.

That article suggested, though, that both parties were in the very early stages of discussion and that any agreement would be quite far off, with many logistical challenges to overcome first.

Talk continues to do do the rounds, though, that the Crusaders want to play the Sharks at Twickenham in just over two weeks’ time. Our information is that a final decision will be taken on Friday, with the ball understood to be in the Sharks’ court at this stage.

I’ve got fingers firmly crossed, needless to say. More on this as we get it.

  • If they can turn a 2000 seat stadium into a 25000 seat stadium with scaffolding at the Dubai 7s, why can’t they do that is Christchurch?

  • @Ben (Comment 5) : Definitely won’t be a sell out. They’d do well to fill half the stadium, assuming it’s HQ of course.

  • The carrot here is to raise money for the relief effort and essentially the Sharks would just be helping out.

    Have to add its most probably the only SA franchise that could get serious bums on seats ..

    Bulls supporters over there are all slumming it in Earls Court and saving money for the next big rave :mrgreen:

    I have heard via media contacts that they are awaiting an answer on Friday.

    I reckon Plum and the team will sit down and discuss this after the Rebels game and make a team decision.

  • reasons to say yes.
    -sharks have an extra day to recover before game
    -sharks and crusaders travel so both teams equally disadvantaged
    -sharks only have an overnight flight back to sa so have more time to prepare for the stormers
    -it is on a neutral ground so no team is advantaged
    -weather could be bad in london, which will help the sharks forward based game
    -it will be a good advert for super rugby
    -it is for a good cause
    -damn it will be great to do something different
    -it gives the crusaders extra time in sa to prepare to beat the bulls, which will help the sharks a lot.

  • Isn’t the game scheduled for the Friday? If it’s moved to London and played on Saturday, doesn’t the fact that it’s a day later kind of negate the shorter distance home after the game?

  • @try time (Comment 22) : Sharks will not have an extra day to recover as we will play saders in NZ on friday or on saturday in Eng. So we get back home at the same time.

  • I’m not too sure if I like it.

    Sure they get to come back early, but it might affect us negatively the next week against the Stormers after basically having to fly right around the world the week before (in terms of distance travelled and not literally).

    The conditions in the NH are not actually conducive to Superrugby and both teams would have to adapt their games to the conditions and it might not be that great a spectacle.

    I doubt it would be played at Twickenham, maybe they can organise it to be played at the Saracens ground, Vicarage ground, if they aren’t using it of course.

    But if I were the Crusaders, I’d rather have it played in New Zealand than in another country.

  • @Butchie34 (Comment 27) : the saders have to head to sa after the sharks game. so making some pounds for their family is better than trying to fleece more from there own residents. get some money from the kiwis overseas.

  • @try time (Comment 29) : The kicker might be the fact that London is only +/- 2 hours behind SA, so there will be NO jetlag.

    @try time (Comment 30) : I don’t think it will matter much, because it will cut down our backline as well. I think we might have a bit of a stronger pack but it will still be tight.

  • @Butchie34 (Comment 27) : Amen. Finally someone sees it like me. Would be totally crazy to fly to the otherside of the world to play this game. We settled in NZ from next week. Play Saders at Nelson then come home and get ready to face Stormers.

    We play Saders in London, we probably lose there and lose to Stormers here. We will be the most tired from all the teams. Sharks will have been on the road for awhile by that time.

    Anyhow said my say on this on the Bulls-Eye thread.

  • @try time (Comment 31) : The next week is their bye, so they would have to fly all the way back to NZ before coming back or they’ll stay in London or come down to SA.

    If they choose the latter, it’ll mean a 3 week tour and we all know the teams from NZ/Aus are softies and need to give their mommies a hug after 14 days, any longer and they need to go for serious psychological councilling.

  • @Butchie34 (Comment 32) : no one said the game would be easy. 😆

    jetlag is minimal as you fly west. and you gain time in doing so. and both teams have to do the same.

  • @try time (Comment 35) : According to some Blues whinges it was part of the reason they lost to us, that jetlag.

    But I am saying the jetlag (or lack thereof) coming back from London would be a positive for us.

    Week 8 home to bulls
    week 9 away to chiefs
    week 10 home to highlanders
    week 11 away to force
    They only come to SA in week 12?

  • @try time (Comment 43) : I remember that I [email protected]#sed of my neighbours when I was living in NYC in 2007. Found a website where I could download the games about 3 hours after the game.

    I downloaded the Sharks/Saders game they played in Durban but because of the delay, I could only watch the game at 2 in the morning. Started screaming my lungs out at the laptop when Odwa broke the line on our 22 to win the game at the death.

  • i think the only real issue that could stop this game going ahead, if both teams agree to it, is television rights. the networks will have to arrange a lot behind the scenes. and the camerawork won’t be as good as what we currently get.

  • I would agree to it with the following provisios,
    1. If these 2 teams meet again in the competition (semi or final) then the game is also played in the UK. and 2 if SA are to play the All B;acks in a world cup match at CHCH then that game also be played at the UK venue.

    week 8 nelson

    Moving the game means travelling to london and back, not moving it means they stay at home for three weeks before going to hamilton then home again

    Current games on 26/3 SA time
    reds – cheetahs 06:40 – 08:40
    chiefs – blues 09:30 – 11:30
    brumbies – waratahs 11:40 – 13:40
    stormers – force 15: – 17:00
    bulls – lions 17:05 – 19:05

    When would this game be played witout a clash?

  • @Greg (Comment 55) : With the time delay, it could probably be played at 19h00 local time (in London), so it isn’t too late on that side. Because of the time difference, it would only be 21h00 in South Africa and at 09h00 Sunday Morning for NZ. It would actually fall into the slot perfectly.

  • Just thought I’d point out that we play the Chiefs on a Friday, while the corresponding Crusaders game is only on the Saturday. So we can actually travel to London 24 hours in advance of the Crusaders, giving us an additional day of recovery before we face them. And then we don’t have to deal with significant time zone changes before facing the Stormers. This could actually be a good move.

  • I would have thought there was a rule in the Super Rugby rule book that would govern this issue?

    IMO, if the hosting team can’t host the match (for whatever reason), then the right to host should be given to the visiting team, or at the least it should be the visting team’s choice as to where the game is played.

    I think playing at KING’s PARK would be most logical and the best for everyone… the stadium WILL be full, it limits the travelling of both teams (cos they’ll both already be in SA for the next weeks games), and The Sharks can agree to donate the profits to the Earthquake fund!

  • My personal feeling is that sometimes people try to get too clever in solving problems, and in the end create more problems than were there in the first place… as in rugby, somtimes sticking to the basics is the best solution!

    Although playing in London might sound like a “romantic” idea, the fact is it creates way more logistical problems than have already been forced on everyone due to the quake… and instead of one or two parties being effected, now more and more people would be required to make concessions to accomodate this idea.

    My philosophy when solving problems is to remember this anogram: KISS

  • 😛 I live by Rugby Road, Twickenham, so I am 100% for the game to be played on my doorstep!! Call me selfish but it would be fantanabulous to have The Sharks here though they would have to wear something warm as the heat and humidity are strangers in this part of the world. Come to think of it so is the sun! And the turf is soggy though The Sharks will remember these conditions from when they used to play a warm-up game to their season against Harlequins just round the corner at The Stoop(correct spelling) not so long ago.
    I don’t see it happening as the logistics of staging it here are almost huge, but I can dream!

  • @CS (Comment 80) : no, you have missed the point. crusaders need to generate revenue. the issue isn’t that canterbury can’t find a ground to have the game, it is they cannot generate enough funds to cover the cost of their players and administration due to less ticket revenue. this will also impact the development of their stadium for the rwc. so the game is theirs to decide where to have it. if they want it in london they can have it as long as they don’t mess the television stations around and sanzar. sanzar has already ok’ed the idea. sharks are the only barrier and it happening. and the sharks won’t rush in without making sure that everyone is on board on their side.

  • @CS (Comment 81) : i don’t see anything difficult in the move. travel arrangements can be made, even if a plane has to be hired for the 60 people. visas will get rushed through. twickenham has hosted a few rugby games. london has a few hotels. only problem might be getting television equipment to the ground.

  • actually a whole plane can be hired out for the trip. this would also eliminate layovers as the plane would only need to stop to refuel. how many kiwi ceo’s would pay to get an exclusive ride with top international rugby players and watch a once in a lifetime game at twickenham. a good promotions guy could really make this trip work well.

  • @try time (Comment 86) : Please let the game be televised. The Sharks have their bye shortly after the game, it would really suck if we had to go through two weeks so close to each other without a game to watch.

    It’ll be even worse not being able to watch the game unfold.

  • @Butchie34 (Comment 89) : butchie this idea will not go ahead if it cannot be televised, the main stakeholders in the super rugby deal is the broadcasters. they aren’t going to let this game through their hands.
