Black Caps and domestic talent train and play at St Paul's

Black Caps Kane Williamson and BJ Watling chose St Paul's Collegiate School to have a private cricket training session. The school's grounds curator, Ian Boyle, proudly made sure the pitch was in tip-top shape for the occasion. 

Over 17-18 February, the school also hosted the New Zealand U19 Cricket team and the Northern Districts in a doubleheader 50 over game at the Way Oval. Five St Paul's Collegians Freddy Walker (Fitchett 2008-2021), Kuwyn Price (Hall 2017-2021), Dave Hancock (Sargood 2016-2019) and Matt Fisher (Hall 2013-2017) made up some of the two teams. 

Whilst no spectators were permitted, it gave our students some great break-time entertainment.
