In day 7 we went to Parakai and enjoyed the relaxing warmth of the hot springs springs. We started our exploration of the springs with the giant waterslide and after we enjoyed the warmth of the pool where we had a game of headers. The visit ended with a delicious burger and chips from the café at Parakai. After this we headed back to Massey High to meet our billets for our last night of hosting where many enjoyed activities such as bowling and golf, on the way we stopped off at one the many picturesque beaches. All the boys gave positive comments about their billets and enjoyed their stays with them.
The day after we had an intense day of rugby training at Rangitoto College in preparation for our game against Rotorua Boys. To relax after this we had the pleasure of watching one of the most prestigious schoolboy rugby matches of the season Auckland Grammar School vs Saint Kentigern College. This was an impressive display of rugby with Saint Kentigern coming out eventual winners 22-15.
Once the match had finished we made our way to the hotel to get ready for a scrumptious team meal enjoyed by both teachers and players before heading back to the hotel to watch the Super Rugby final.
