You can read more in our media release, including a letter from Mayor Annette Main to Air New Zealand....

Morning everyone - the Council have just ph to advise that ALL grounds are still OPEN so we are keen to ensure the kids get to play rugby! ALL GAMES ARE GOOD TO GO 😀 Due the weather forecast being unreliable 🌦🌩☀️ - if the weather turns extremely bad/dangerous during the morning we expect the coaches to liaise with each other & make a decision in the best interest of the children's safety. Wrap up warm & enjoy!! 🏉
