CONGRATULATIONS TO THE BOYS FOR REACHING THE SEMI FINALS !
A BIG THANK YOU to Angus Gardiner and the Canterbury Team for coming and visiting us in the Supporters Club at the Lancaster Hotel, after all the home round robin games. It was much appreciated by all who stayed to see them. Players who had reached 12 games for Canterbury were capped after the Hawkes Bay game. Well done to those players.
