Matters Arising



None sent or received.

Wellington Rep Squad

A call is to be made asking for expressions of interest from those who would like to be part of the Wellington Rep Squad. This is to be put up on the website for all to see. No decision has yet been made on whether the TriStar will take place. Southern region have indicated that they may not take part this year. The tournament should be in Wellington so we are assuming it will go ahead at this stage.

A coach etc will be appointed as the AGM and we have enough experienced players around to start the training.

Report presented by Kevin. Some discussion was held around the rules relating to who beat who on a tie-break. To be looked at again.
