Hautapua Sports host Hamilton Old Boys in a senior rugby double-header this Saturday (May 21).

Our Premier A and B teams play their counterparts in their 2022 Waikato Premier Rugby competitions at Memorial Park.

The Development teams kick off at 1pm.

The clubs’ Waikato Premier teams will then go head-to-head at 2.45pm.

A feature of the main game will be the 50th club appearance by Hautapu’s Kaea Hongara who earns a club blazer by reaching this milestone.

In February, Hongara completed a solo 162km ultra-marathon to raise awareness of mental health, and to raise funds for The Key to Life Charitable Trust. Click here to read more about Hongara’s ultra-marathon >>>>
