The Bay of Plenty Men's Sevens teams is set for action at this weekend’s TECT National Sevens at the Tauranga Domain.

Bay of Plenty Men’s Sevens’ Head Coach Sean Horan has named a well-rounded side co-captained by Tauranga Sports’ Josh Honey and Rangiuru’s Elijah Nicholas for this weekend.

Horan said the team is excited to play in front of a home crowd highlighted the team will be taking a game by game focus to provide them with the best platform to progressing into the later stages of the tournament.

“We’ve been excited about playing in Tauranga since it was announced. It is always pretty special being in the first for something.”

Horan is pleased with his team’s progression leading into their final tournament despite the loss of a couple of key players to injury.

“The team has built nicely over the pasted couple of months; we have a young excited group of men keen to show their skills. We’ve lost a couple of key players Te Aihe Toma and Isaac Te Aute which was a bit of a speed bump, but it gives another player an opportunity and those players are really looking at show casing their skills.

Horan concluded, “We’re really proud to be representing the home province of the TECT National Sevens. I believe if we play to our potential we’ll be in the race, we have a great bunch of guys that really enjoy being together.”
