REME Rugby League

REME Rugby League (the Royal & Electrical Mechanical Engineers) of the British Army team visited New Zealand on a tour to celebrate the Regiment’s 75th Anniversary year. After goodbyes and good lucks, the group took to their rugby tour destination for two brilliant weeks.

The 29-strong group commenced their stay in Auckland, arriving on the afternoon of the Lions’ tour opener in Whangarei. Taking in Eden Park’s Blues v Lions encounter spirited the soldiers after a tough opener. Thanks go out to Takapuna RFC for their kind use of facilities and equipment ahead of this fixture.

REME Rugby League and beautiful North Island, NZ

With so much to see around North Island, the squad took in Rotorua’s Skyline and Luge. Wellington’s Te Papa Museum was sandwiched between four nights at Palmerston North. The second game went in REME’s favour, narrowly beating teams from the NZ Defence Force. On the whole, it appeared that REME wasn’t the only team to head to New Zealand in June to square a Series!
