Rugby Reps.

Here is a report from Cindy Ehau on our Under 65kg Canterbury Metro. rugby reps. who played in the holidays:

It was a great weekend of  rugby in Dunedin.
Lots of good hard competition with Canterbury Metro U65kg coming in  3rd.
They lost the  first two games and won the last three. Southland won and Otago came 2nd Canterbury Country was 4th.
The boys played hard learned lots and made some good mates.
We are proud of them.
Jacob was named in the South Island team. He was chosen along with other top players from all the teams. They were photographed in  the yellow uniform at the end of the tournament. The team doesn’t play but it shows they were the stand out players of the tournament and South Island.
