‘Dream come true’ for Mini Lions team thumbnail

IT will be a dream come true for four young Coleraine rugby players as they set off for the Lions Tour to New Zealand at the weekend.
The boys are part of the Mini Lions team from Ulster Rugby travelling to New Zealand at the same time as the official British and Irish Lions tour. On Sunday they had a final training session at Rugby Avenue, Coleraine
The tour will be a competitive affair with the joint Coleraine, CIYMS and Ballymena team having a series of matches - capped with a clash against the Mini All-Blacks. The fixtures include games against Petone RFC, Hunt Old Boys RFC, Tawa RFC and Wellington RFC.
The four boys from Coleraine Rugby Club's U11 team are Zack McCartney, Max Steen, James Bell and Joshua Bennett and they are part of the touring squad of 14 players. They are being supported by coaches Jonny McCartney and Paul Forbes and a number of very proud parents.
