    Alternate names for the Crusaders

    Iím surprised more people arenít mentally trying to think of a good new name for if the Crusaders do redbrand.

    A few possible suggestions:

    The McCaws
    Eggmen
    Wizards (bring it back)
    Scoundrels ( picture of a Kea that looks like Richie McCaw as the mascot)
    The Remarkables (thatíll piss Otago off)

    It’ll be pretty funny if the actual rugby team changes it before the cricsim team. I did ask Cribb about a name change and he said no (reasons were it being the same as a major sports team though). Cribb taking a virtual simming league team name more seriously than the NZRU.

    'Stats' is not a synonym for 'Career Test Averages'

    Yeah I tended to not let teams change names because the stats site didn't have a function for "in Season X it was called A but in Season X+1 it was called B". I'd have to had to put it in as a different team entirely and I definitely didn't want to do that.

    I'd say the Bulldogs but that's not a fate I'd wish on a grieving city.

    Or any city for that mater.

    The Pilgrims?

    Wrong Canterbury, but has strong brand recognition. Although it might have the same problem as "Crusaders" too, now I think about it.

    Maybe "The Canterbury Tails"? Badge a severed kangaroo tail, obvz.

    Knights? Could keep a lot of the logos and theme tune etc plus knights have more of a heroic connotation than crusaders
