At the event Manukau Steelers players, Jimmy Tupou, Sam Henwood and Toni Pulu, will be sharing their rugby passing tips and tricks, and be up to competing against the Mitre 10 customers who are game.
Jimmy Tupou said he’s looking forward to the event at Mitre 10, “Provincial rugby games have been around for 140 years now and so there are some pretty significant historic rivalries in NZ which makes the competition really fun.

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.
