Public trainings or community activity are a regular part of the build-up to every home Test match and the All Blacks have both planned for New Plymouth.
On Tuesday morning, groups of players will visit two schools and two rest homes that were chosen at random from the many requests directed to the Taranaki Rugby Union. The schools are Francis Douglas Memorial College and Waitara Central. The rest homes are Chalmers and the Heatherlea Care Centre. The private visits are for students and residents respectively.
“The response to the All Blacks match in Taranaki has been pretty special with a lot of invitations from the community,” said All Blacks manager Darren Shand. “The team can’t get to everyone, but hopefully a lot of fans can attend Monday’s training and meet some of the players.”
