Best rip­per rugby school in South Is­land

The Southland Times - - Front Page -

Af­ter a week of play­ing rip­per rugby and din­ing with All Blacks, the Lime­hills School rip­per rugby team achieved more than just a sport­ing achieve­ment, ac­cord­ing to school prin­ci­pal Jim Tur­rell.

The team rep­re­sented South­land at the New Zealand rip­per rugby cham­pi­onships com­ing in fifth, the best re­sult for a South Is­land team.

‘‘It’s re­ally about more than rugby – we are get­ting these kids to be able to work to­gether.’’

Tur­rell said the praise had to go to the team and their coach Hunter Mur­ray for their hard work.
