The Crusaders Super Rugby brand seemed set to change, after the previous month's tragic Christchurch mosque shootings.
NZ Rugby and the Crusaders franchise had engaged outside consultants to oversee the changes, with NZR chief executive Steve Tew describing the imagery as "no longer tenable".
After a lone gunman killed 50 victims at two mosques in the Crusaders' home city, pressure mounted to drop a name that may have seemed like a good idea when the competition began in 1996, but now appeared inappropriate.
Twelve months later, the name remains the same, but the imagery has changed, with the medieval knights no longer part of the logo or pre-game ritual.
