Proudly Supporting Tasman Rugby


Tasman rugby union news

CEO Chat with Tony Lewis

Wow, what a great weekend for rugby on the first Saturday in May, highlighted by the start of JAB and Age Group rugby. I remember back to this age, as I'm sure many of you do, and the absolute joy of the first game of the season. My grandfather would be telling me to dress and look like a rugby player as that might fool the opposition.
