Cambridge’s Memorial Park on Taylor Street will play host to the annual Northern Regional Rugby Sevens tournament on Saturday 9th December.
The Waikato Rugby Union is organising the event, which will feature six provincial unions (men’s and women’s) from the upper North Island – Northland, North Harbour, Auckland, Waikato, Bay of Plenty, and 2017 National Sevens champions Counties Manukau – competing for their seeding positions at the 2018 National Sevens in Rotorua.
The Waikato Men’s Sevens team, which this year features Leamington player Regan Erueti and Hautapu player Sheldon Tovio, will be looking for back to back Northern Regional titles after winning the 2016 tournament at the same venue, beating Northland in the final.
However they will face stiff competition from the current 2017 National Seven’s champions Counties Manukau Men’s, who beat Waikato in the National Seven’s final earlier this year.
The Northern Regional Seven’s tournament kicks off at 10.00am at Memorial Park, Cambridge, on Saturday 9 December. More information can be found at www.mooloo.co.nz.
