In part two of our Super 8 Rugby Championship series we take you behind the scenes of Super 8 first XV preparations in Bay of Plenty. We catch up with our two Super 8 schools Rotorua Boys' High School and Tauranga Boys' College to see how their teams are shaping up and what they think of their chances this year. There is a lot on the line for these young men who will battle for Super 8 glory throughout 2019, as well as try to make a name for themselves as players, in the hope of securing a professional contract.
