The Crusaders are helping build rugby in Brazil.
In a country where Football is king, the Crusaders are helping to promote and build the growth of Rugby Union in Brazil.
In a four year deal the Brazilian Rugby Union has enlisted the help of the Christchurch based team to provide full time trainers and visits from coaches.
The Crusaders are working with players and staff to train the Brazilians to Super Rugby standards of Rugby Union.
The Brazilians goal is to reach a Rugby 7’s World Cup and with the help of the Crusaders they believe they can make this goal a reality.
The next step will be to make a competitive showing at the Rio Olympics in 2016 for both their mens and womens teams.
