As President and Manager of the NZAA Colts Under 21 Team, I was very proud of the team that represented New Zealand. Their discipline and attitude were excellent.

In the first test we were so unlucky not to have taken it, one little slip cost us, but it didn’t deter the attitude or the will to win. To win the third was fantastic, first win in 6 year’s - great effort, great team. Especially against a strong Aussie team. Funding is a very big issue; to finance a team to go away is very costly. There is a possibility of an invitation to Sydney Royal Show next year so we will be looking for a major sponsor to help us, so if anyone knows of any businesses that wants to help out or be a major sponsor, please contact us as early as possible, so we can get on to it. Any little bit helps.

Sponsors that helped for Adelaide in 2015 were:

• Eddie Fawcett
• Last Resort Karamea

Thank you so much for all of the support given throughout the year to get this committee back on track.

The team to travel to Adelaide in September 2016 for a 3 Test Series against Australia U21’s is:

• Brad Pako
• Jack Jordan
• Chris Lord
• Logan Tinomana
• Aidan Grant
• Brodie Grant
• Nic Corbin
• Rex Petersen
• Tawhai Lackner
