Rugby: A big crowd watched plenty of huff­ing and puff­ing as the Pack the Park in­vi­ta­tional match went down a treat in In­ver­cargill on Satur­day.

A crowd of about 7000 was at Rugby Park Sta­dium to watch two teams of for­mer play­ers play a char­ity game for the South­land Char­ity Hos­pi­tal. The game was made up of 30­minute halves and, for the record, the Blair Vin­ing XV won 52­17.

A func­tion on Satur­day night cel­e­brated the oc­ca­sion and also raised some funds for the hos­pi­tal.
