Ospreys and Connacht to mark earthquake with

By Ospreys Rugby | 25/02/2011

There will be a one-minute silence at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday afternoon to acknowledge the victims of the earthquake in Christchurch earlier this week.

Players, management and supporters will pause ahead of kick-off (2.30pm) to remember the victims of the earthquake that struck the New Zealand city on Tuesday.

Ospreys Managing Director, Roger Blyth, confirmed:

“A number of members of staff at the region, playing and management, have links to Christchurch and the surrounding areas, and as such, have been personally touched by events this week.

“Given these links, and the strong bonds between the Welsh and New Zealand communities, sporting and otherwise, we feel it is appropriate that we pause ahead of Sunday’s game to acknowledge both the victims of the earthquake, and the typical resilience shown by the people of Christchurch in adversity.”
