England spell sharpens loosie


Athletic Marist loose forward Jared Whitburn feels his rugby has improved after a six month venture to England.

Whitburn received a scholarship from the North Otago Rugby Union to England to play for the Barkers Rugby Club in Coventry, something he really enjoyed.

“It was a very enjoyable experience, both the rugby and the social aspect off the field they were a great club.”
