NEW ZEALAND RUGBY LEAGUE PROVIDE STARTER PACKS TO ENCOURAGE YOUNG PLAYERS AS GAMES START AGAIN
New Zealand Rugby League is preparing to return to play this weekend and thanks to the generosity of Sky Sport with support from OPRO and Steeden, they are providing a starter pack to all kids (U6-U12) who register online to play Rugby League in New Zealand in 2020.
Everyone who registers will receive a Sky Sports Starter Pack which includes a Steeden ball, OPRO mouthguard, Kiwis and Ferns Poster and a handy boot-bag. Kids who registered before the Covid-19 pandemic will also receive a Starter Pack.
NZRL staff have been working tirelessly behind the scenes packing thousands of bags that are currently being delivered across the country.
NZRL CEO Greg Peters says,
“We know how much of a challenging time this has been and we wanted to give back to the tamariki in our communities who are readying for a return to the field.
“Thank you to our valued partners Sky Sport, OPRO and Steeden, all providing quality equipment for the packs that will go a long way with those who receive them.
“We are excited for the much-anticipated return of rugby league this weekend. Thank you once again to all those in our rugby league communities for the patience and resilience shown throughout this period."
