Fears over Christchurch rugby venue

Earthquake raises concerns over state of city's rugby stadium ahead of Rugby World Cup.

    The Rugby World Cup is set to take place in New Zealand in September, but the recent earthquake in Christchurch may have big implications for the event.

    Key matches are due to be played at the city's Crusaders' stadium, but since the earthquake, questions are being raised about Christchurch's ability to host the games.

    Although players and coaches were unharmed, their facilities are being checked for possible structural damage.
