The Bay of Plenty Under 19’s will play their final seeding match tomorrow afternoon at Arataki Park, ahead of the Mitre 10 Jock Hobbs Memorial Tournament in Taupo.

Bay of Plenty Under 19 Coach Mike Rogers recognised the strong challenge Waikato poses this weekend, “‘Waikato are the pinnacle of New Zealand Under 19 Rugby having won the Jock Hobbs Memorial tournament in 2016, and prior to that having been runners up or semi-finalists. They are regarded as the best of the best in this particular age group which is a reflection of their Academy programme.”

“We have come a long way over the past 12-24 months in terms of our Academy and Under 19 programmes which has been demonstrated with our results so far this season, but this will be the true test of that improvement,” said Rogers.

Rogers finishes encouraging supporters to cheer the team on tomorrow, “We really want to encourage the wider Bay of Plenty rugby public to get out and support us in what promises to be a great match,” said Rogers.
