NPEC v Northland Development (Taniwha) 17/10/20

As we prepare for our clash vs Northland Development (Taniwha) on Saturday, we’d like to thank our match day sponsor, SUMMIT FORESTS, for helping make it all happen.

Here’s a bit about them.

With 37,000 ha of forests throughout Northland, Te Tairawhiti and Whanganui region, and log trade exports in Whangarei, Gisborne and Taranaki, Summit Forests is a proud supporter of rural communities and grassroots rugby.

We understand tradition and still employ 400 year old sustainable business practices of our parent company Sumitomo Corporation. So ”The Taniwha coming to the Awa” which acknowledges traditions of both regions, is a natural fit with us and we’re so happy to support it.

Forestry is as ingrained as rugby on the East Coast, and we’ve been proud Ngati Porou East Coast sponsors since 2016. We are excited to bring together two regions we work closely with through the unifying sport of Rugby.

We look forward to seeing you all at George Nepia Memorial Park, Rangitukia, 2.30pm Saturday!
