The Bay of Plenty Volcanix will kick off their pre-season at 12.00pm this Saturday 11 August in a Game of Three Halves against the Black Ferns and Farah Palmer Cup premiership side the Auckland Storm at the Tauranga Domain.
 
Head coach Brendon Webby has named two starting fifteens to face their respective oppositions and said this Saturday’s game is a welcomed opportunity for the squad.
 
“This is a fantastic opportunity for the girls to step up and put their hand up against two highly talented teams. We haven’t been training as a unit for that long, but in our individual clusters we have been grinding away for some time now.
 
“It will be a challenging task at best but will provide us with some excellent preparation as we move up into the Premiership division this year. We are looking forward to it and believe our squad will proudly represent their province this weekend,” said Webby.

Bay of Plenty Rugby Union CEO Mike Rogers said the Game of Three Halves will be an exciting afternoon of rugby for spectators to enjoy.
 
“This is a unique opportunity for our community to see first-hand the best players in the country hit out against our team and an exceptionally talented Auckland side. There will be no gate charge; however we do ask you give generously to our chosen charity Mount Maunganui Surf Lifesaving.”
 
Kids will eat for free thanks to Tauranga City Council and Molenberg.
 
“We know “kids eat free” is a winner and we couldn’t have delivered a free BBQ for the kids without the support of Tauranga City Council and Molenberg, so we thank them for this” said Rogers.
