Many players from the North Canterbury rugby club, Saracens, took the scenic route to their latest games.
Saracen’s division two, under 9, under 10 and under 11.5 players played their latest round of rugby in the seaside town of Kaikoura.
Back down State Highway One Amberley and Ashley under 6 met at Loburn Domain, while young North Canterbury netballers lined up at the Dudley Courts at Rangiora recently, warming up during their introduction to the new season.
Meanwhile in an upset the Ohoka senior rugby side toppled the more fancied Lincoln in a Lusetti Seeds combined country senior division one match.
