Blake Hickford – U65kg Metro Rep 2016

Well done to Blake Hickford (Shirley Rugby U13) who was selected at prop for the 2016 Canterbury Metro Under 65kg rugby team in the South Island Primary Schools Tournament.

The Canterbury Metro team played and won 5 games over six weeks (vs. Canterbury Country, Nelson Bays, Southland, South Canterbury and Otago) scoring 193 points and conceding only 61 to win the Tournament and become the South Island Champions!

Canterbury Metro were also awarded the fair play trophy for their high standards during the Tournament. In a pre-tournament game they were victorious for the first time in 15 years (!!) over the Wellington U65kg team.

In recognition of his performances, Blake was selected for the 2016 South Island U65kg Representative Team.
