CANCELLED – Hurricanes U14 Boys Rugby Festival

Friday 20th August 2021

Following the Government’s decision to extend Alert Level 4 through until Tuesday night, School Sport New Zealand has subsequently announced that all sanctioned events on its calendar through till September 6 have been cancelled.  This unfortunately includes Winter Tournament Week and the Hurricanes Under 14 Boys Rugby Festival.  This will no doubt be a huge disappointment to your students and their families.  Clearly this decision was not made lightly and College Sport Wellington supports the prudent approach it has taken.

A big thank you to all you all who organised getting your teams ready for the Hurricanes Under 14 Festival.  I know what a gigantic effort it takes to organise a rugby team, especially those from out of town.  Without your efforts, there would be no tournaments for our rangatahi to play in.

Also a big thank you to all the stakeholders and sponsors of the tournament, Hurricanes Youth Rugby Council, Dynasty, NZ Rugby, Wellington Rugby, Wellington Rugby Referees, Wellington City Council, and School Sport NZ.

He waka eke noa (we are all in this together).
