Under 16s kick off Hurricanes Tournament

Under 16s kick off Hurricanes Tournament

The Manawatu Under 16s team is competing in the Hurricanes Youth Rugby Council under 16 tournament in Gisborne. The team got off to a shaky start with a heavy loss to Wellington and battled their way to a hard-earned draw with Wairarapa 26-26.

The depth of the squad will be tested for their next game after injuries ruled out several players. Wednesday will see a Hurricanes Rugby Education Workshop where players will be split into their specific positions, with a big focus on Mental Skills, Nutrition and Player Development. Building a career beyond Rugby will loom large throughout the day, a fantastic opportunity for both the players and coaches.

The tournament finishes on Thursday October 3rd with Manawatu taking on Wairarapa once again for 3rd and 4th.
