Manawatu Men's 7's launch pre season campaign

The Manawatu Men's 7's management will launch their 2018 campaign earlier than usual. The move comes on the back of the Bayley's National 7's being moved to 15th December with the Regional Qualifiers being on Saturday 1st December. This reduces the gap between qualifier and Nationals.

The move is to provide those players not currently in 15 a-side representative programmes an opportunity to upskill in the lead in.

Sessions will be once per week and will be open to all players, a final squad will be selected following the Represenative programmes at the end of September. 

Community Rugby Manager Ben Koch said "the change of dates had proved to be a real hit with players, they now know they can trian hard and have Christmas and New Year's as a real holiday this year". 

The skills session will also provide a valuable lead in to the Manawatu Club 7's series which will be held Thursday 25th October and will be followed by the Club 7's Tournament on Saturday 3rd November.

All club players are welcome to attend the skill sessions which will be held once per week every Monday commencing from the 20th August.
