The Wellington boys, the ‘Wellington Lions’ welcome the Canterbury boys for their first visit to Wellington with a haka and a massive jump at the end of it! After-match drinks are held at the Randwick Rugby League Club. Afterwards, the players head to a privately rented small hall for awards and a good night of socialising and fundraising for Wellington Deaf Rugby League.
