Congratulations to the First XV and their management team for an excellent win over Central Southland College 48-12, on Wednesday, March 20. The win is step one in the process of qualifying for entry into the First XV Highlanders Competition. Next Wednesday the team plays James Hargest College at 4pm here at St Peter’s. The winner of this game will gain entry into the Highlanders Competition. The significance of this cannot be underestimated. The school, in conjunction with the rugby committee, has been strategically working toward this for some time. Entry into this competition not only provides a great pathway for our rugby players, but also is significant in terms of attracting future pupils to our College and Boarding House.
A community effort in supporting the boys next Wednesday would help them no end. The game will be screened on Cue TV which reiterates its importance. We wish them all the best for the game on Wednesday, and we hope to see as many of you there as possible being vocal in supporting our team.
