Once more, players from Kiama Junior Rugby are participating in the annual tour of NZ by the U13s Illawarriors rep side.
The eight day tour will see the boys play against sides in Christchurch, Dunedin, Cromwell and Queenstown.
The squad was selected in August and has been training since September. It brings together players from Campbelltown, Camden, the Illawarra, Kiama and Bowral.
“It’s been a big commitment getting up to Camden for the training once a week, but the boys were very keen to be part of the team,” says Liz Thomas, the mother of one of the players.
“It is an amazing opportunity for boys their age to play sport in another country. Who wouldn’t want to play rugby in NZ?”
Kiama’s Jaxon Lavender, the Team Captain, says, “The competition is going to be brutal but we are up for the challenge.
“We are all really proud to be representing Kiama, the Illawarra and our country.”
The team will be leaving at Easter, and would appreciate any donations to help them with the costs of fulfilling their rugby dreams.
