Hawke’s Bay fans are set to further enhance their rugby fix in 2014, with the Hurricanes announcing a match against the Bulls at McLean Park.

The Napier stadium has also been named host of the All Blacks Test match against Argentina on September 6, giving the locals plenty of sporting action to experience throughout 2014.

Hurricanes chief executive James Te Puni said he was delighted to announce the Hurricanes would be travelling north to Hawke’s Bay for the Bulls clash on April 5.

“We’re really excited about bringing this match to Napier along with the Hawke’s Bay Rugby Union and Napier City Council.

“It will be a great opportunity for our Hawke’s Bay fans to see the Hurricanes in their own backyard, and for our team to take the field in one of New Zealand’s great rugby provinces.”

HBRU chief executive Mike Bishop said the union was just as excited to be adding a Hurricanes match to the region’s schedule.

“The Hurricanes playing in Napier next year is part of a commitment we have to give the rugby fans in our region a diet of top class rugby to choose from throughout the rugby season,” he said.

“It has been a pleasure to work with the Hurricanes in making this fixture happen for 2014. The Napier City Council has once again demonstrated a strong commitment to assisting us with bringing events such as this to McLean Park, and we are grateful for their assistance.”

Napier mayor Bill Dalton said the Napier City Council had spent close to $14 million on McLean Park in recent years, so it was great to see it being recognised as a premium sporting venue.

“I’m absolutely delighted the Hurricanes are coming to McLean Park.

“The whole of Hawke’s Bay will benefit from, and I’m sure support, this match,” he said.
