Several players from the Southland Stags team visited Invercargill’s Mitre 10 Mega store on Sunday as part of the Mitre 10 Cup Roadshow, giving members of the public the opportunity to meet the players, learn some passing skills and compete to win rugby-themed prizes.

“It’s great to see the Invercargill Mitre 10 throwing their support behind the local team and getting the community together,” Stags player Tauasosi Tuimavave said.

The Mitre 10 Cup competition, which kicked off on August 17, runs for nine weeks with the championship final to be played on Friday, October 27, and the premiership final on Saturday, October 28.
