The Levin Domain is a bit damp, but otherwise ready to host tonight’s Super Rugby friendly between the Hurricanes and Crusaders.
About 2500 adult tickets have been sold, with children piling in for free, so spectators are advised to get to the ground as early as possible.
The only grandstand at the ground, which holds approximately 800, will not have allocated seating, so it will be a case of first in best dressed.
The Hurricanes travelled up to Levin this morning while the Crusaders fly out of Christchurch early this afternoon and are expected to arrive in Palmerston North just before 3pm.
From there they’ll bus to Levin, which had always been their intended travel plan long before this latest weather event.
Christchurch Airport is open, despite there still being a dusting of snow throughout the city.
Fans are advised to dress warmly for the match which is expected to go ahead regardless of the weather.
