Wellington Rugby staff and Club Game Development Officers were overwhelmed by the talent and enthusiasm of all players who attended our 2021 Williment week and were pleased to announce their 2021 tournament squads.
Squad Black will be coached by Greg Foe & Logan Ngatuere-Ongley. Squad Gold will be coached by Tom Kimber, Dan Miller & John Herbert. This year the decision by WRFU, as ambassadors of the balance is better in youth sport, have decided to select two teams with a balance of skill and ability. This allows all players equitable development and opportunity. The squads will carry 28 players until the naming of the tournament team of 24. This is to give more players an opportunity to develop and time for the coaches to work with players.
We are excited to work with the players in preparing for the tournament in Ruatoria from Monday 4 October to Thursday 7 October.
Our teams will compete in the Hurricanes U16 tournament, held every year in the Hurricanes Region, with this competition having been going since 1972.
