Former club member Dane Kieser pictured here with All Blacks great Dan Carter during and after their two respective New Zealand clubs battled it out this past Saturday. While Dane’s side finished 2nd for the day, what an experience it was for him to line up against a great club featuring arguably one of the best rugby players of all time. While speaking to Dane prior to the match, he mentioned he was warming up in his KJRFC shirt. No matter where you go, how far away it is or how long it’s been since being here, once you are a part of this club you will always be a part of this club. Rock Chalk Jayhawk

Tune in to the Canterbury Rugby page tonight at 9:45 CT to watch former South African Jayhawk Rugby Club player Dane Kieser as his West Melton Rugby Football Club takes on former All Blacks great Dan Carter in New Zealand. Dane’s time here was a lot shorter than we wanted 8 years ago, but his impact was greatly felt on, and off the pitch and the relationships he has with the people here are still highly regarded. Dane moved to New Zealand from South Africa a short time ago. When he arrived, he was just looking at playing some social rugby. After the club saw the type of player he is, Dane found himself playing for the premier side. Check out Dane playing lock tonight against one of the best rugby players to lace up the boots!
