Girls' squad named to make debut at World School Sevens

The Sky Sport Future Warriors have expanded their junior pathways programme to incorporate a girls’ under-18 squad for the 2022 World School Sevens tournament at the Pakuranga Rugby Club on December 17 and 18.

After entering a boys’ team in the established rugby union tournament for the first time last year, the club has now also selected a girls’ squad to wear its colours this time.

The commitment to a girls’ campaign comes as the One New Zealand Warriors are broadening their pathways programme following the NRL squad’s return to Mount Smart Stadium after three seasons based in Australia during the Covid era.
