South Island Pre-season Trip
18th - 23rd April 2017 (School Holidays Term 1)
The Pre-season trip has been a great success both on and off the field. A loss, a draw and a win saw the team improve throughout the week and enjoy some valuable team building experiences. See Facebook page for photos.
This year the 1st XV / Development team will also have the privilege to have an overseas visiting team from HALLIFORD SCHOOL (UK). This game will be played 2 August. Billeting will also be required for 31 boys.
1st XV and Development will train closely together, to make transition between the two teams as easy as possible. The players will support each other with skill development that will benefit both teams.
