Steamers squad announced for 2016
Written by KP   
Saturday, 23 July 2016

The squad has just been announced for 2016. Lots of young talent in there, especially players who have shone in sevens. Biggest loss is Carl Axtens who went to France on a short-term contract and did well enough to have his deal extended.

The best news is that Culum Retallick is back again despite playing his super rugby in Australia. With 92 Steamers caps, he will become a centurion this season (injury permitting) and it will be a long time before we have another centurion.

Also good news is that the union has abandoned its "premium" ticket prices for Tauranga Domain and it is back to a flat $20 for adults and $5 for kids under 14.

Two home games in a week, played at 2 different grounds and with 2 different outcomes.

Let's start with Wednesday's game against Southland at Baypark. Firstly, Wednesday is a stupid night to play rugby and I'm not sure why they bother making every team do it once per season just to shave a week off the duration - why not just start a week earlier or finish a week later?
