Barefoot bash

A bundle of energy descended on the Waiuku Rugby Fields on Friday last week, as hordes of local primary school children took to the fields for the Franklin Tackle Rugby tournament. The tournament was planned for the Wednesday prior, but the touch of rain nature delivered pushed the event to the save day. With the sun streaming down, the spectator’s voices and the frosty grounds slowly warmed up. Just as well, as the tournament was played barefoot. A great day, for the great game.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
