With three games done, only two more remains for Yorkshire Terriers Rugby Tour. Wellington, New Zealand here they come!
We are now midway through the Yorkshire Terriers’ Australia and New Zealand Rugby Tour and what a journey it has been. Katie Peggs, our Rugby Tour Manager is leading the group, raising spirits and keeping the cogs of the journey turning. Meanwhile, the team and experienced coaching staff focus on training and matches. Living up to her nickname, Katie really is “The Commentator”, spilling the beans on all the excitement of the trip so far…
Team morale is sky high
The Yorkshire Terriers Rugby team have visited Sydney and Auckland; training, sightseeing, exploring and playing against fierce competition. With an outstanding 2 out of 3 wins, the team’s morale is sky high as the lads set off to their final tournament destination in Wellington. Some would consider the recent match loss a wake-up call. The Terriers’ almost near perfect winning streak has been disrupted, bringing in a new element of competitiveness. Since the loss, they have stepped up their training, and we are pleased to have organised such a challenging set of matches.

Seeing the sights
Alongside a whole LOT of rugby, the group has plenty of time to visit all of what Sydney and Auckland have to offer. The Blue Mountains and the Hobbiton Movie Set are just a few to mention. Relaxing by the beach post-training and fixture matches is exactly what has been needed for the hardworking team. All in all, the trip has been a perfect balance of work and play.

The Yorkshire Terriers Rugby team and Katie will finish the tour officially on 5th August 2017, departing from New Zealand and will land home on the 6th. We cannot wait to hear more about the spectacular tour.
Best of luck on the next two matches lads against Petone Rugby and Wellington U19s, and have a wonderful second half to the trip!
