Rugby League stars of the future

Today we celebrate three talented rugby league players here at Oaklands.
Fletcher Due, Scott Butterick and Jacob Nyman travelled to the West Coast at the weekend to represent Canterbury 10s.

Selected along with 10 other boys from all over Canterbury after a day of trials, the boys won the 10s tournament and victor's trophy.

They won their first game 24-18 with Jacob scoring two tries in the second game which they won 48-6.

The students had a fantastic afternoon. Teachers were impressed by their enthusiasm to give everything a go and do their best.  Thanks to all the parents who came along and supported this event.
