Four of our junior rugby players have been selected to play in the Auckland U16 South team. These four regional teams will play in a round-robin against each other as an opportunity to foster their skills as rugby athletes. Following this round-robin, players will be competing to be selected for the Blues U17 training camp later in the year.
