The curtain raiser to Waikato’s stunning Ranfurly Shield win on the weekend was a fundraiser match played between a Waikato Invitational side and a regional parliamentary team.
The match, captured by Waikato Times photographer Mark Taylor, was won by the invitational side 31 - 24.
More than $5000 was raised for Alzheimer’s Waikato in the two game tournament that included a netball match won by the Parliamentary team, coached by Labour MP Nanaia Mahuta.
