It's been the longest day in living memory for pretty much every New Zealander. I'm very sad to say that there will inevitably be some even harder days to follow. The kind thoughts and deeds of anyone who has extended their sympathies will be hugely appreciated.

Awful news, my thoughts are with everyone in New Zealand.

I hope the death toll ceases to rise as soon as possible.

This is terrible . the people of New Zealand are in my thoughts and prayers.

Strangely enough my Girlfriends brother who was living in NZ and spend a good while in christchurch told me before christmas that he reckoned the place was ready to go..apparently the seismic activity was massive in the last year.
He moved to sweden a month or so ago because of it. :/

Horrible.

Heard a government minister say they're taking it one day at a time, but it sounds like they have no idea how bad the damage is.

I hope all the New Zealand members and their friends and family are o.k. The loss of life and destruction of property is terrible, but I know the country of New Zealand will rally and be a great host to the world in September/October.

There are a lot of Crusaders fans on here and its going to be an emotional season, reminescent of 2005 in America when the New Orleans franchises dealt with the flood.

I saw on their website that the IRB released this limited statement

i'm completely gutted by this news, damage to buildings, like what occurred in the September quake is one thing, 75+ fatalities is another.

Fortunately i've heard that most of my friends and family are okay, but I feel for those who weren't so lucky :(

To read a bit more on how it effects the SupeRugby and the RWC, here's a TVNZ article with the latest news:
