Defending champions Wellington made a winning start to the Hurricanes under-16 rugby tournament yesterday.

Wellington beat Taranaki 47-6 in the opening round at the Petone Recreation Ground.

"It was a team effort," manager Dean Simpson said.

The nine provincial unions in the Hurricanes franchise are all represented in the competition and Wellington will also meet Hawke's Bay and Manawatu in the premier pool.
