FROM THE EDITOR
I really enjoyed getting out of the office last week to check out Palmerston North Boys’ High School’s attempt at the world’s biggest rugby scrum.
It was a spectacular day weather-wise and there was definitely a buzz at the school as students and the community lined up to take part in what could be marked down in the Guinness World Records.
The current world record for the largest scrum was set in Japan last year with 1565, but the number to beat was an attempt in Ireland earlier this year with 1740.
It looks like the turnout of 1758 at Boys’ High last week was enough to tick it over the edge.
It was quite the logistical feat lining up so many people - teenage boys at that - but the co-ordination was on point.
It was a great community event that will help to put Palmerston North on the map as a rugby-loving city.
