South Waikato News - - NEWS -

Back- to- back In­vestec Su­per Rugby cham­pi­ons, the Chiefs, will be pay­ing a spe­cial visit to Toko­roa next week.

Chiefs play­ers and man­age­ment will be at the Toko­roa Me­mo­rial Sports Grounds on Wed­nes­day, De­cem­ber 18 to play a few rounds of touch with some lo­cal teams.

Af­ter­wards they will meet and greet the com­mu­nity and sign some au­to­graphs.

The visit was brought about by well-known lo­cal busi­ness­man David Foote, who spoke to Chiefs Coach, Dave Ren­nie, at the South Waikato Achieve­ment Trust Awards.

‘‘As a team, the Chiefs haven’t been to Toko­roa for a good 17 years, so when I spoke to Dave about this, he was just as keen as I was to get the boys down here and show the flag,’’ said Mr Foote.

Se­nior Con­sta­ble Darin Costar has or­gan­ised for four high school touch teams and two other lo­cal to play along­side the Chiefs’ play­ers.

‘‘The teams are all ex­cited; it’s a great op­por­tu­nity for them to meet with the play­ers.’’

The Chiefs will be at the Toko­roa Me­mo­rial Sports Grounds from 2.45pm - 3.45pm, so make sure to go along for a chance to get up close and meet the team.
