The Little Blues are back – with a helping hand from foundation Blues sponsor, Barfoot & Thompson.
With our special family theme to the Investec Super game against the Rebels, it was the ideal time to bring back a Little Blues Rugby tournament prior to the Blues match against the Rebels.
Four teams from the Under 9 years (35kg) will take part from Takapuna, East Coast Bays, Papatoetoe and Waitakere.
“We are delighted to get behind the Barfoot & Thompson Little Blues Rugby Tournament,” said Barfoot & Thompson Managing Director, Peter Thompson.
“We’ve been behind the Blues since the start of Super Rugby and have seen young players come through the system all the way to our Super team. We want to help promote this event and I am sure we will see some of these Little Blues back on Eden Park in 10 or 15 years.”
The Barfoot & Thompson Little Blues starts at 3.30pm with a series of three rounds before playoffs and the final at 4.10pm ahead of the Super teams the Blues and the Rebels beginning their warm-ups.
