Due to the latest COVID-19 outbreaks Australia Secondary Schools can no longer travel to New Zealand in January 2022 and holding an Auckland camp in October is looking increasingly unlikely. We have therefore decided that we will hold a camp from the 17th Jan - 19th January in Auckland (provisional dates and venue). At this camp, players will have the opportunity to play the NZ Maori team and hopefully another game. Whilst this is not perfect, it does allow players to represent NZSSBFA.

Selected players will receive direct communication advising of future plans.
