WP president’s kids support Saders
- 07 Apr 2013
The two daughters of WPRFU president Thelo Wakefield are both staunch supporters of the Crusaders and All Blacks.
Wakefield said last week that the bad behaviour of the Cape Crusaders is why Saru won't stage Springbok-All Blacks Tests at Newlands.
WP also launched an investigation into the violent incidents in the stands that plagued the Stormers-Crusaders match.
According to Rapport, the WP president admits that his daughters support the Crusaders and All Blacks, but that they understand the golden rule that you must behave when you go to rugby and that you go to enjoy it.
