Marcus Howie, the Rugby Development Officer with Thames Valley Rugby Football Union, caught up with Brian Gentil at the start of a busy weekend for Marcus.
The Under 16 and 18 Argentinian teams arrive today and will attend a Powhiri, or Maori welcome, later this afternoon in Paeroa.
They’re playing two invitation Thames Valley sides on Sunday in Waitakaruru.
Coronavirus was the next subject they brought up, with it already affecting the 6 Nations game next week between Italy and Ireland being postponed at this stage, and also the Brumbies game next weekend in Japan against the Sunwolves called off.
Marcus and Brian then ran through all the Super Rugby games in round 5 across this weekend.
The Chiefs and Crusaders both have a bye.
The Highlanders have the homed ground advantage playing the rebels, while the Hurricanes host the Sunwolves.
The Blues have travelled to South Africa and come up against the Stormers, who have won all four of their games so far this season.
Then it was on to all the other games across the weekend in the Super Rugby with some great match ups.
