Day Three

Visit to ‘Kelly Tarlton’s Marine World which was pretty cool. They had a small snow tractor there on display in the ‘Artic Display’ so we decided to see how many players we could fit into it. Yes, we managed to get all 13 of us into an object meant to only hold 5.

Our first official game of the tour was changed into a 15 a side game which meant we had to borrow a couple of players from Waiteke College to make up numbers. These boys play hard and after their losses yesterday, they were out for revenge. They were missing some players yesterday from the 7’s comp (they have 30+ players in the squad!!) so they were quite literally bulked up and set out to equal up the score sheet. These boys were brilliant and showed the BMGS guys a few things in how to play the 15 a side game.
Unfortunately we werent able to replicate yesterdays success and we went down 5 tries to 4. We took away many lessons from this game which we need to work on but the lads should be proud of how they went.

Id like to thank Waiteke College and in particular their coaches Nonu and Dale for the generousity and hospitality. Our boys have made many so friends at this school and are so keen to catch up with them again in the future. Waiteke epitomises NZ rugby and they were marvelous hosts. Thanks again boys!!!!


Sorry about the quality of the pics. I only had my phone!
