Come and Meet an All Black

31/07/2014 12:00 a.m.

Make sure you come along to Ashburton's Sinclair Community Centre at 72 Park Street from 11.00am-11.45am  next Thursday 7 August to mix and mingle with three All Blacks: Kieran Reid, Owen Franks, Dominic Bird.

Each year New Zealand Rugby selects several towns around the country for All Blacks to visit and lucky for us, Ashburton is one of the towns chosen this time round.   

At the event, you'll have the chance to ask the All Blacks some questions, play a fun rugby ball game, win a great prize and even get some autographs and photos!

Mayor Angus McKay says he is really thrilled the All Blacks are coming to our town next week. 

"It's a wonderful opportunity for our community to show our loyalty to one of our national icons," says Mayor McKay.

"I encourage everyone to come out and give them a great Ashburton welcome," he says.

The three All Blacks who will be visiting Ashburton will be announced early next week.

On their visit to Ashburton the All Blacks will also be calling into Ashburton College for a skills and drills session, before visiting students at Ashburton Intermediate and having a cuppa tea with the school's staff.
