Huge success for Inaugural NZTFI Nationals 12-13 February 2010!

The first ever NZTFI Nationals was held last weekend and all we can say to everyone who participated is awesome effort guys - it was huge!

We had representatives teams at the Manukau Sports Bowl from North Harbour, Auckland, Waitakere, Counties Manukau, East Auckland, Waikato ki Tamaki, Central, Wellington Canterbury and several hundred spectators so overall pretty good results.

Big ups to those teams who travelled up from Wellington and Canterbury and our congratulations to all the teams and supporters and to all the winners of the sections.

The conditions were just about perfect - hot and humid (hey it's Auckland weather!) and the hard dry ground gave us some hard fast running and good try scoring.  The tournament was definitely a great showcase for the sport and positive to see that we've got some great talent out there and more young  players coming through.

Our thanks again to all the teams and supporters who participated in the first NZTFI Nationals and put a ring around 19,20,21 March when the Aussies come to town.
