We again entered a Development team in the 2019 Festival Cup competition. This season the WRFU changed the way this competition operated.
Previously the competition was held earlier and the WRFU Development team was selected at the completion of the competition.
This year the WRFU Development team was selected prior to the competition being held, and this along with the WRFU U19 team players being unavailable, meant there was not the same pool of players for Centurions, Wellington Samoan and Wellington Maori to select from.
However it is the ethos of Centurions to provide additional rugby for these club players and a team was entered.
Thanks to the magnificent work done by our Coaches: Greg Sharland, Lincoln Rawles and Reggie Goodes, together with Centurion Managers: Paul Rolton and Tracy Smith the team performed extremely well and were a credit to themselves and Centurions.
They played 5 games, won 3 and lost 2, with the highlight being a two point win against Hawkes Bay B at McLean Park, Napier.
