RUGBY UNION: The West Norfolk club got a taste of Kiwi rugby culture when Haka Rugby Global came to town for an inspirational two-day summer camp, an elite clinic for girls and boys aged seven to 18.

The North Wootton-based club played host to HRG which is run by ex-professional rugby players and coaches Troy Nathan and Regan Sue, and uses Maori culture and rugby as a tool to develop their skills.

The group was involved in team building, confidence and skills training. The inspirational coaches supported the players, bringing their unique cultural flavour and enthusiasm.

The coaches introduced the participants to the ‘Powhri’ an official welcoming to begin their camp experience and following games, skills, traditional songs and of course a world famous Haka. The players finished their experience with a tournament to showcase their talents for parents and supporters.
