The verdict on the Crusaders name and logo will be revealed this afternoon.

The franchise's name and imagery was pulled into the spotlight after the mosque attacks, although a brand review was already on the cards.

Newstalk ZB's Brian Ashby told Radio Sport Breakfast Cantabrians are pushing to keep the name alive.

He says it's been a hotly debated issue in the region.

Ashby says people who don't support the name are aggressive and vociferous on social media.
