27 Apr 2021

Two Mercury Bay athletes, Haven McLean and Tiana Tiro, played for the Thames Valley Open Mixed touch team in the New Zealand Touch National Tournament that was played in Christchurch over the weekend of 17 and 18 April.

The Thames Valley team was undefeated heading into the final against Auckland, but was unfortunate to lose the final by only one touchdown.
