The Gold FM Rugby Report with Harcourts Gold Star on Friday morning started with Brian Gentil asking Scott Day, Rugby Development officer with Thames Valley RFU, about the training night in Waihi on Thursday for the Thames Valley Vixens. Scott is the coach and he was pleased the numbers have increased, and it’s not too late for other interested women to join them at their next training session which is going to be held in Thames next Thursday. Contact Scott at TVRFU if you want more details.
Brian and Scott checked out the Heartland Competition with Thames Valley at home for possibly the last time this Saturday. They’re playing Whanganui, who are right on their heals, at Boyd Park in Te Aroha with kickoff at 2 pm. Scott and Brian talked about the other games as well, with first placed South Canterbury traveling away to play West Coast. The Swampfoxes may have to travel south to play for the Meads Cup depending on this weekend’s results. Get along if you can and give them yur positive support. It’s just $5 for adults, cash at the gate.
The NPC has some good games again this weekend, with Waikato taking on Otago, and Scott thinks Wellington might be too strong for Tasman. Hawkes Bay have a ‘friendly’ against Northland so the Ranfurly Shield is not up for grabs.
Scott and Brian talked about the All Blacks game against Italy early on Sunday morning. Sam Cane and Dane Coles are back, Sam as captain, and there are a few other lineup changes from last weekend’s game against the USA. Ian Foster is resting some players and Brodie Retallic is taking the extra week with his shoulder injury.
Scott thinks the scoreline will be comfortable for the AB’s, but don’t right off the Italians he said.
