Congratulations to Patrick Tuipulotu who has been named in the All Blacks Northern Tour squad, Pat has looked very impressive since returning to the All Blacks and due to this has been rewarded a spot in the touring 37. Alex the “Chief” Pledger continued his fine form as the Breakers won their third game in a row defeating Melbourne Untied. Storm Purvis and Kayla Cullen have jetted off to Melbourne for the Fast 5 World Series. A special mention to Jess Quinn who is now 16 years cancer free.

Social Media Tips & Tricks
2. The new Instagram poll feature is very helpful to find out what your followers really want. It makes it super easy to ask questions about what kind of content they want to see e.g. videos vs photos or training vs dieting. You can then mould your feed to suit your followers.
3. A cool feature that Facebook is slowly rolling out is, comments/tags popping up like messages. This enables you to quickly reply to a comment or tag.
It’s been another great weekend for the WeAreTENZING rugby family.
Matt Wright and Dan Hawkins, unfortunately, lost their semi-final clash vs Wellington but this shouldn’t take away from what has been a great season for the Northland Taniwhas. Also congratulations to Dan Hawkins who reached a big milestone by playing his 50th game for Northland.
Ajay Mua and Bay of Plenty continued their impressive run with a win over Otago. They have now booked themselves a championship final spot where they will play Wellington.
Overall another awesome week, well done!
Alex Pledger and the Breakers battled out a hard fought win vs Melbourne United on Sunday.
Melbourne United had looked like early title favourites after their impressive preseason were they narrowly lost to NBA powerhouse, Oklahoma City Thunder 85-86.
Adding to this Melbourne had their superstar Chris Goulding, returning to action after being injured during the preseason.
However, Melbourne turned out to be no match for the Breakers who ran away to an 11 point victory.
Alex continued to impress being a dominant defender all game.
Awesome work Alex, we can’t wait for your battle with the Brisbane Bullets on Thursday.
