Typically at this time of the year, we are attending fitness trainings, education meetings, packing our kit bags on Friday nights and running around with the whistle on Saturdays. We are connecting with our friends, our club mates. Connecting with the community on and off the field.
Not only do we not have this at the moment, but we are impacted in so many other ways. There is no rugby for now, but it will return. Priority is looking out for ourselves, our whanau, and supporting our friends and club mates in whatever way we can. Keep connected. Keep building friendships. Keep fit, both mentally and physically. Keep learning and invested in YOUR sport, your passion.
