We delivered some pre-loved rugby boots off to Otahuhu Rugby Club as part of our Best Foot Forward initiative, and then Jimmy Tupou and Patrick Tuipulotu stuck around for some skills and drills afterwards.
Best Foot Forward is a programme to gift recycled boots to youngsters who might otherwise miss out on playing rugby. With the support of Yakult, manufacturer of the Yakult fermented milk drink, the Blues are seeking donations of used boots in good condition, which we’ll clean and donate to the people who need them most.
Collection bins will be operating at Blues’ home games, accessible 24/7 at Eden Park and QBE Stadium and available during office hours at the Blues High Performance Centre.
