Every young girl and boy will go to bed on Friday night wanting it to be the morning. I can remember many years ago going to Kettle Park in Dunedin as an eight year to learn the basic skills of rugby - catch & pass, tackle, serve & step and team work.

CEO Chat with Tony Lewis

At the 12th Tasman RU AGM, long time rugby supporter at all levels, Shane Drummond, was made the third TRU Life member joining Max Spence and Kieran Keane in that honorary position. I sat down this week for a Chat with ‘Drummy’ to get a fix on how he felt about this honour, and more.
