Bay of Plenty Men’s Sevens head coach Sean Horan and his assistant coach Steve Miln today announced their wider training squad for the upcoming sevens season.
 
Horan said the twenty four players selected provide a talented mix in his wider training squad and is excited to see how they develop over the coming weeks.
 
“We’ve picked a competitive training squad, with a varied set of skill and experience. There are some players from the past, a few from the Under 19’s squad, a couple of new players to the region, plus there are a couple of exciting young players that are still at school.”
 
Horan continued, “We’re excited about the opportunity that presents itself to the group. It’s great to have the TECT National Sevens based in Tauranga for the first time and hopefully the exposure that the players will get, will help their future progression.”
 
The squad will officially begin their preparations this weekend holding a camp in Ohope. They will compete in two pre-season tournaments held in Pukekohe and Thames ahead of the Northern Regional Qualification Tournament in Cambridge on Saturday 1 December, where they will seek qualification for TECT National Sevens on the 15th and 16th December in Tauranga.
