Highlanders to play NZ Barbarians in Invercargill
The Highlanders will take on the New Zealand Barbarians at Rugby Park Stadium, Invercargill at 6.30pm on Friday 20th June 2014 as they finalise their preparation for their final three round robin games of the 2014 Investec Super Rugby Competition. The New Zealand Barbarians led by President Bryan Williams are very keen to see the globally respected and highly recognisable Barbarian brand showcased in the deep South.
The Barbarians will be coached by Stags coach, Brad Mooar, and managed by Leicester Rutledge. Like traditional Barbarian teams there is likely to be an international flavour to the selection along with a number of promising Stags and players from other New Zealand provinces.
Jamie Joseph commented that “it will be great to get down to Invercargill and show the Southland people how we have progressed as a team since 2013. This is an important game for us as we build into our first game back after the June break against the Chiefs.”
There will be a Highlanders 1st XV competition curtain-raiser kicking off at 5pm between Menzies College and St. Peters College showcasing the school boy talent from around the region.
Members and sponsors will receive preferential ticketing from Friday 9th May and public sales will commence on Friday 23rd May. Tickets will be available online and from all Ticket Direct outlets.
Prices: Adults $20.00, Secondary school students (13-18 years) $10.00 and children under 12 years and under FREE.
The Highlanders would like to thank Rugby Southland and the New Zealand Barbarians for helping them bring this game to Invercargill.
