Canterbury Metro Rugby Reps. 2017

Last night we had three Hillview Year 8’s named in the Canterbury Metro Rugby Representative teams. Jacob Tauamiti and Jamie Ehau were named in the Under 65kg team and Tom Harrison was named in the Under 48 kg team. Again, this is an amazing achievement and to have three boys selected would probably be a first for Hillview. We thank God for their talents and the opportunity to use them in representing their province.

The boys will play in the South Island Primary Schools Tournament in September / October competing against seven other South Island unions – with the final tournament in Dunedin in the first week of the term three holidays.
