The new year is off to flying start for one young fan. In January, our principal partner nib offered Blues fans 6-18 years old the chance to be the 11th Man on our squad for the Brisbane Global Rugby Tens. We’re thrilled to announce Lynfield College Year 10 student, Tyler Quigley-Biggs is the winner and will join the team as the nib 11thMan.
Tyler and his mum will experience being on tour with the Blues when they fly to Brisbane, stay in the team hotel and go behind the scenes at Suncorp Stadium on 9-10 February during the Brisbane Global Rugby Tens tournament.
nib New Zealand CEO, Rob Hennin, highlighted that nib received a large number of great entries and choosing a winner wasn’t easy. “nib is proud to be the Blues principal partner and to offer a young rugby fan an experience that money can’t buy, is something we’re thrilled to do”.
A keen young Hooker, Tyler’s interests include playing rugby, watching rugby and PS4 – we think he’ll have no trouble slotting into the squad and he’ll even look the part in his official Blues kit gifted as part of his prize.
