Ranfurly rugby mania will hit town on Tuesday when the Magpies bring the Ranfurly Shield to Wairoa.
The Hawke’s Bay regional team won the Log o’ Wood when they beat Otago in the Mitre 10 Cup provincial rugby round.
The convincing win saw the Magpies score 28 points against 9.
Tuesday’s visit will see some of the Magpie team members come to Wairoa to share the shield.
They will be at the Wairoa Community Centre from 11.30-11.55am, Wairoa Primary School from 12-12.45pm and St Joseph’s School from 12.45-1.30pm.
Local people are more than welcome to head down to any of the locations and meet the players and see the shield.
The Ranfurly Shield is a provincial rugby challenge trophy that has been played for since 1904.
The shield is based on a challenge system with the Hawke’s Bay Magpies first challenge game set for Friday, October 16 evening game when they face Northland on their Napier home ground McLean Park.
