Rugby Newsletter Week 1 /2015 Greetings To You All. Welcome to the 2015 season and this the first of our Newsletters for the year. It may seem early, but rest assured there is lots happening in North Canterbury rugby.Watch this space !! A lot of the preseason preparation is also happening right now, and I can assure all players that it is not just on the training fields. Many of loyal and dedicated club administrators are putting in countless hours dealing with registrations and the construction of their respective teams for each grade. All those who are yet to register are urged to do so as soon as able. IT IS NOT TOO LATE. North Canterbury rugby has a key strategic goal of growing our playing numbers across all grades. Please contact your Club if you are yet to register. We are very fortunate to have such a hard working band of volunteers , and sincerely acknowledge the great work they undertake at this time of the year. All Clubs are asked to ensure that the registration documentation should be delivered to myself, so this can be recorded and then forwarded for the data entry process: Ross Dixon Rugby Administrator North Canterbury Rugby Sub Union 18 Green St Rangiora 7400 email: admin@ncrsu.co.nz Tel: 03 310 7870 Mobile: 0275 555361

Four North Canterbury Teams In Canty Metro Colts Competition Over the off-season some wonderful developments have taken place, not the least of which is the intention for an additional two North Canterbury teams to be entered in the Canterbury Metropolitan Colts grade competition. Hurunui and an Oxford-Woodend side will join encumbents Glenmark and Ohoka . This a tremendous achievement by the Clubs and those involved. It is great news for North Canterbury rugby to have a Colts competition , we will be keeping a "virtual" North Canterbury Colts Championship table and it will be published in this newsletter very regularly. It may even be that we could hold a North Canterbury Colts grade final on Finals Day.
