Hornby High School again competed in the Senior League Nines Tournament held earlier in the year. Despite the junior tournament being postponed we arranged some games against Haeata Community College and St Thomas which were very competitive.
Rugby League is well supported here at school and whilst there is no mid week school based competition available to players, we know many of our students are actively involved in club rugby league.
The Hornby Panthers offer a great league programme and a number of our students have gone on to not only perform with merit at club level but gain representative honours at Canterbury, South Island (Scorpions) and higher levels. A number of our junior students at the Year 7 & 8 level are also showing great potential in League. We would like to acknowledge the ongoing support we receive from Corey Lawrie.
The following players represented Canterbury this season:
The following players were selected for the South Island Scorpions teams:
