Presidents XV Play thursday
Hamilton Boys high School are coming to Stradbrook. KO this Thursday against a Rock Presidents XV.
The idea of the Presidents XV is to invite guys that are in their final year from the local schools & give them a great day out showcasing the great coaches, pitches, facilities & atmosphere that our club has to offer.
Hamilton Boys are on an unbeaten tour so far.
Their most recent All Black is Tawera Kerr-Barlow who came on for Aaron Smith in the Cup final.
In the past 12 years they have produced a number of international players and at the last World Cup had the following playing for various countries
Ireland - Jarrod Payne
Scotland - Sean Maitland. Hugh Blake also played in the pre world cup games but missed the cut
Fiji - Dominco Waqaniburotu
Tonga - Kurt Morath
Australia - Henry Speight, Toby Smith
Wales - Whilst not playing, Warren Gatland is an old boy
They have 4 ex-players in the current contracted group of 20 for NZ 7"s.
Kick off is @7pm so come on down, see the haka and some future All Blacks in action!
