“We are thrilled to be head­ing down State High­way 1 to Hamil­ton for this game,’ says SKYCITY Break­ers gen­eral man­ager, Dil­lon Boucher.

“We are also grate­ful to the NZ Break­ers man­age­ment for work­ing with us to present game tick­ets and a full coach­ing ses­sion for 500 lucky Waikato Coun­try Bas­ket­ball Ju­nior play­ers on the Satur­day morn­ing af­ter the match.’
