Me ha parecido una experiencia inolvidable, los chicos de la academia
son geniales y los entrenadores muy cercanos, lo que ayuda mucho a comprender
la filosofía de rugby Maorí y como trabajan en el campo. Es una pena que sólo
haya estado una semana, aunque ha sido de gran provecho. Dejo en Rotorua
grandes amigos que espero volver a ver algún dia.

Gracias por todo Olga y extiende el agradecimiento a toda la academia!

It has been an unforgettable experience. The boys at the academy are
great and the coaches very approachable. This has helped me a lot to understand
the Maori philosophy about Rugby and how they work in the field. Is a pity that
I’ve only be for a week, even it has been a very good learning experience.
I’ve left very good friends at  Rotorua that I hope to see one day.

Raul Garcia (Coach) from Spain

We arrived at Petone around 2pm to a warm welcome from our Wellington academy. We stayed at Te Tatau o Te Po Marae. After we set up camp we took the boys for a tiki tour around Wellington going to see Te Papa.

Both Wellington and Rotorua academies did a 20 minute Neuro session at Jenkins Gym then went to the grounds to prepare for kick off. Before the game commenced as tradition the Wellington academy preformed  the Whanganui-a-tara haka and the Rotorua academy boys preformed the Te Arawa Haka.  It was typical Wellington weather raining and the grounds were muddy the game was entertaining between academies, with Wellington taking the lead initially the game was neck in neck with the score always within one try, Wellington lead through out until the final 5 minutes where the Rotorua academy conjured up a try and a conversion which drew the match 30 all.

 All in all it was a very high quality game the skill level of the players was also at a high level . Players from both sides who stood out in particular were:   Murphy MacCormick (Wellington) Va’a Asomua ( Wellington), Petara Rikiriki ( Wellington), Te Amo Wilbore( Rotorua) Te Haata Wilbroe ( Rotorua) Joe Va’atuitui ( Rotorua), Jaya Vahua ( Rotorua).
