SH1 closed after crash near Huntly

A man is in a critical condition after a motorbike crash north of Huntly on Saturday afternoon.

The crash happened at around 2pm on State Highway 1, just north of Fisher Rd.

The man has been airlifted to Waikato Hospital. No other vehicles were involved, police say.

Rugby fans heading to Saturday night's All Blacks match against the Pumas had been told to expect delays.

SH1 was closed in both directions, but has since reopened.

The New Zealand Transport Agency also says delays are possible around the FMG Stadium tonight ahead of the rugby match.
