The Southland Stags team has been out and about in our community talking about why they play rugby, having photos with their fans and giving members of the public the opportunity to meet the players.
Stags at Myross Bush School
Southland Stags players James Schrader, Jack Capil and Junior Ngaluafe visited Myross Bush School on Wednesday, September 20.
They spent time with pupils and answered their questions about the reasons they started playing rugby, what makes a good team, had they ever been underestimated and did they like to play for the Stags.
Southland’s next home game is against Manawatu on Saturday.
