Following this week's sell-out Crusaders v England match at AMI stadium, the English rugby team has donated 10 signed jerseys to the Canterbury Rugby Earthquake Relief Charitable Trust for auction.

Crusaders communications manager Juliet Calder said the team wanted to show support for the Christchurch rebuild, and had worn the trust's logo on their jerseys for the same reason.

The first of the 10 jerseys will be auctioned on the buy and sell website Wheedle, where all registered users would be able to bid.

The remaining nine jerseys will be auctioned separately at a later date.

The Canterbury Rugby Earthquake Relief Charitable Trust was set up after the February 2011 earthquake and aims to help restore rugby infrastructure in Canterbury and assist clubs, players and communities affected by the earthquakes.
