Your say: Otago rugby union being miserable
I am disapointed that those family members and carers who wish to watch their kids compete in the finals of the rippa rugby competition can’t see them without paying between $15 to $20 per adult. This is the price of the tickets to watch the Otago v Southland game that is on after the rippa final.
The ORFU reply includes: “We would like to think that the parents and grandparents of players will join in the spirit of the occasion and stay (or come back) for the Otago Southland match and watch their children form the guard of honour for the two teams.”
