The pri­mary school boys’ Hatch Cup team is off to Auck­land and the Col­lier girls are bound for Tau­ranga. Both have had promis- ing results in the buildup to their re­spec­tive tour­na­ments.

‘‘We’re go­ing up there fo­cus­ing on one game at a time, we can’t look too far ahead,’’ Hatch Cup coach Colleen Sud­daby said.

‘‘We’re ranked fourth in our pool and we’re head­ing up there pre­pared for that fight.’’

They will face Auck­land, Taranaki, North­land, Manawatu and Cen­tral Otago in their pool.

The girls are in a pool­with In­ver­cargill, Marl­bor­ough, Waikato, Bay of Plenty and Hawkes Bay. Coach Wil­liam Sharp said the team had trained well and was look­ing for­ward to the tour­na­ment.
