Structex is stepping away from the office and onto (well alongside) the sports field in 2018 and sponsoring the University of Canterbury Rugby Football Club. The club has a strong engineering contingent as well as students form other faculties and many members outside the university. It has provided support to some of our own staff over the years and we are thrilled to be able to support the club in return.
University rugby has been going strong for a long time, celebrating 125 years in 2008, and over this time has produced a large number of representative players including 23 All Blacks and 21 Black Ferns. The current crop of players are performing well on the field, with both the mens and womens premier teams sitting near the top of the table. It’s been a tougher year for our own Adam Walkers 3rd grade side, managing to muster their first win last weekend. Best of luck to all involved for the rest of the season.
