Although the Rugby 15s season has come to an end, there is no shortage of union going on this summer.
Howick College is gearing up to compete in the Girls Premiership at the prestigious Condor Sevens, held in Mount Maunganui this year from December 2-5.
The school’s senior girls side recently came second at the Auckland Rugby 7s tournament, losing to Mount Albert Grammar School 14-7 in the final.
Meanwhile the junior girls won the Blues Region Year 9 and 10 tournament, beating MAGS in the final 31-12.
“The senior team are training hard and are a little bit more experienced this year with our young girls a year older,” says director of sport Adelita Sotutu.
She thanked Accurate Waterproofing and Lucca Trailers for their continued support.
Meanwhile, PURC had some success recently, being crowned bowl champions at the Cobra 10s, held in Malaysia, in its 50th edition.
The squad of 18 was made up of players from the club’s premiers, premier development, under 85kg Panthers and Under 21s sides, as well as school leavers.
A PURC side will also be competing at the Global Youth Sevens tournament in Auckland from December 15-17.
