NZRFU to stop fireworks at games
The New Zealand Rugby Union has announced that it is suspending all  fireworks at their games.
The new rule comes after on-field fireworks at the Bledisloe Cup injured three people.
The three were struck by debris when the fireworks ignited following the All Black haka.
NZRU chief executive Steve Tew said fireworks displays are off until the cause is known.
He said it would be foolish to put anything on unless spectator safety can be completely guaranteed.
The company involved, Van Tiel Pyrotechnics, said it has been setting up displays for the All Blacks for more than 10 years without any incident.
