In June two of our athletes traveled to Palmerston North to compete for Christchurch in Part Two of the Wheelchair Rugby championships. Both Canterbury teams did well with Canterbury Black placing 3rd and Canterbury Red placing 5th out of eight teams.
Overall, it was an amazing weekend with a showcase from the Wheel Blacks team and some nail biting competition in the finals with both games being point for point for the majority of the time.
We would like to say a massive thank you to the Canterbury team for inviting us to play for them and helping make it happen. Also, thank you to Manawatu Wheelchair Rugby and all of the supporters, officials, volunteers and spectators for all your support.
And good luck to everyone playing in the National Championships in Papatoetoe at the end of August!
