'We have put in place a system that will allow us to commemorate September 11, which is respectful of the memory of those who died and notably the rugby family who were touched by this tragic event,' Lapasset said. 

Lapasset added that there would be special banners adorning the stadium in New Plymouth to commemorate the anniversary.
