Let’s go out and play some touch

Touch is a fast, non-contact form of rugby that proves to be one of the most popular sports here in the Manawatu.

It’s also a great social sport that caters to all ages and abilities. As the Manawatu’s love for touch continues to grow, there has been an increase in touch modules in the region.
