Crusaders coach Scott Robertson has addressed the Canterbury measles outbreak ahead of his team's clash with the Highlanders tommorow.
Robertson says hygiene is important around the team, who greet each other with "fist pumps" rather than handshakes to minimise spreading illness between the players.
His comments come as the number of measles cases in Canterbury sits at 28 and continues to grow, with two cases also confirmed in Auckland.
Crusaders fans are also being urged not to travel to Dunedin because of the measles outbreak.
The Highlanders meet the Crusaders at 6.35pm tomorrow.
Tonight, the Chiefs meet the Hurricanes at 6.35pm.
