NZ Rugby Foundation launches website with social networking functionality
Posted on 3-Sep-2007 16:44. | Tags Filed under: News.

The New Zealand Rugby Foundation is plugging into online networking with the launch of its website.

Comparing themselves with global networking sites Facebook and MySpace, the New Zealand Rugby Foundation says its web site allows members to create their own profile space and search for old rugby mates.

A number of high profile rugby players are already members including Dan Carter, Richie McCaw, Troy Flavell, Jerome Kaino, Derren Whitcombe, Daniel Braid and Sam Tuitupou.

The Foundationís website is part of NUM8ER - the Official Supporters Club of New Zealand rugby. NUM8ER, of which Buck Shelford is the Patron and founding member, is an online rugby community for fans of the New Zealand national game.

The websiteís features include the ability to create your won profile space, chat and discussion boards, online polls, discounted tickets, virtual rugby, screensavers, video content and most importantly search and finding old rugby mates.

The Foundationís CEO Andrew Flexman says the website caters to a new generation of rugby fans and points out that by joining NUM8ER members will be aiding the charitable causes of the NZ Rugby Foundation, namely, supporting seriously injured players and grassroots rugby.
