Xtra and the New Zealand Rugby Union have built a new Xtra Super 12 Web site to house exclusive Xtra Super 12 content, including video highlights, interviews with Xtra Super 12 coaches and players plus regular insights from All Blacks coach John Mitchell.

As well as exclusive content on the Xtra Super 12 Web site, Telecom Mobile will be utilising the advanced capabilities of its 027 (CDMA) network to make a range of exclusive Xtra Super 12 features available on mobile phones.

From the beginning of March Virtual Super 12 players will be able to enter their picks via 027 phones – a first for Virtual Super 12)
