Hurricanes players helping with food preparation.

Future Hurricanes meet their idols By Jacob Beleski MASSEY JOURNALISM STUDENT

The Hurricanes family day gave supporters the chance to interact with their heroes at Waitangi Park on Saturday March 19. It was also a chance for the players to recognise the contribution of their fanatically passionate fan base. Fresh from an emphatic 41-6 win over the Western Force the night before, the players spent the morning signing autographs and taking photos with supporters of all ages. Fans were given the opportunity to test their rugby skills, and also to interact with the players in a variety of games and activities. The Super Soaker was extremely popular, with young fans getting the opportunity to soak the players including crowd favourites Beauden Barrett and TJ Perenara. Nine-year-old Hurricanes enthusiast Jayden Peer, from Miramar, was keen to give his opinion on the current Hurricanes team. “Julian Savea is my favourite, but I cried when Nehe (Milner-Skudder) hurt his arm last week.” Injured superstar Nehe recognised a shift in the team’s vibe after its nail-biting win over the Blues the previous weekend. “The boys took a lot of confidence from the way we held the Blues out at the end.”

The squad was relaxed and happily interacted with fans even though there were a few sore bodies from the encounter with the Force. Despite being ruled out for the Super Rugby season, Nehe appreciates the invaluable support they receive every week. “It’s awesome (to come here today), this is what it’s all about, to give a little bit back to the fans that support us every week.” Captain Dane Coles agreed: “Fans are what make rugby so special, it’s great to turn out for the kids and connect with fans. “It’s great to play for the kids and families every week.”
