Media Release 2 June 2022

Farriers Wairarapa Bush versus Whanganui game cancelled.

It is with disappointment to announce the Queen’s Birthday weekend game against Whanganui has been cancelled due to a significant number of players being unavailable with either Covid, flu and injuries.

This meant the original squad named has dropped down by half and there are key positions which would cause concerns is a full squad was not able to be selected.

After in-depth discussions with the Heartland coaches and management, is was decided that the player’s well-being should be at the fore front of any decision and all players to be given an opportunity to recover properly, so they are able to complete their club season and be fully fit by the beginning of the representative season.

We would like to thank Whanganui for their understanding, and we look forward to an uninterrupted club season and the commencement of the Bunnings Heartland Championship which starts in August.
