Women's Toro team off to winning start

The Manawatu Wanganui women's Toro Interprovincial team got off to a good start yesterday with wins over Waikato and Taranaki. Things get tougher today with a matches against Canterbury and Bay of Plenty. Canterbury will be particularly tough, but has the potential to be close. The other team in their pool likely to do well is Wellington, whom we will face in Fridays final pool match.

The Manawatu Wanganui team of Tara Raj, Zhouyi Hu, Brydie Hodge, Lisa Herbert, Lily Griffin and Casey Chettleburgh are very capable of making the semi-finals, but will likely need to beat either Canterbury or Wellington to increase those chances.
