Fans from all over Counties Manukau will have the opportunity to see the heroes of the sevens and the women’s game at both these events.
Oceania Rugby Interim General Manager Lemalu Wayne Schuster stressed the importance of these events:
“We have the World and Olympic Sevens Champions in our area and we plan to give our teams the best preparation possible in Rugby Sevens.
“The ongoing effects of Covid’s impact on our region and the border closings have had a significant effect on team performance. This competition provides an opportunity for our teams to prepare for their campaigns and gives them a boost.
“South Auckland has a strong Pasifika history, and we look forward to seeing support for both the competitions in coming weeks.
Counties Manukau Rugby Aaron Lawton is the Chief Executive Officer of Counties Manukau Rugby Union and is a partner with Oceania Rugby to deliver these events.
“We are thrilled to host these tournaments in our region. We have a strong Pasifika flavor in our community. We know that people will be eager to see the New Zealand teams in action for the first time since a few years. Therefore, we expect the matches to be very well attended.
“We look forward working with Oceania Rugby in hosting these international events of the highest quality.”
