Earlier this term we were fortunate to have three Old Boys and current Turbos rugby players – Jason Emery (PNBHS 2007 – 2011), Brayden Iose (2012 – 2016) and Liam Mitchell (2008 – 2012) – along with Turbos Assistant Coach and New Zealand Under 20 Scrum Coach Greg Fleming, run a training session with young men in the Junior 6, 7, 8 and 9 Rugby teams. This opportunity was available thanks to the support of Dean Nicol from the Distinction Hotel Palmerston North, who nominated Palmerston North Boys’ High School through the ‘Adopt a Turbo’ programme and we sincerely thank him for his support.
It was fantastic to welcome back Jason, Brayden and Liam who are great role models both on and off the rugby field. The positive manner in which they engaged with our young men was fantastic to see. Special thanks to Greg Fleming for his organisation of the coaching session. We wish Jason, Brayden, Liam, Greg and the entire Turbos squad all the best for their upcoming season.
