2012 National Championships Round-Up

NZ Favourites - Southern: Can anyone stop former All-Black Marc Ellis and his team Southern?Southern are NZ's number 1 ranked team and are now placed at number in the global rankings. The Aucklanders will be confident going into this December's national championships, particularly given they have a couple of Kiwi sporting legends in their ranks - Marc Ellis & Martin Crowe.

The New Zealanders didn't manage to make it over to the World Championships this year in Cape Town, so we're especially looking forward to them making the trip to English shores in August next year!
