Always great to see the Massey University Academy of Sport members here at the Sport and Rugby Institute throughout last year. We’re looking forward to seeing you again this year!
It is not every day you walk into work and are greeted by two World Cups and 3 other legendary pieces of rugby silverware! Thanks to Mike Chu and the NZRU for displaying these trophies at the Regional Development Officers camp, based here at the Massey University Sport and Rugby Institute.
Recently the Massey University Sport and Rugby Institute hosted the High Performance Swimming New Zealand National Training Squad during their week in Palmerston North. The SRI provided a base for the swimmers dry-land strength and conditioning work as well as their recovery sessions. Awesome to have such amazing athletes training on the Massey campus!
Congratulations to the Manawatu Cyclones women’s rugby sevens team who won their respective national title over the weekend, also congratulations to their male counterparts who played well but lost to Bay of Plenty in the Plate Semi Finals. Great to see all the hard work pay off for both of these teams after putting in lots of work at the SRI last year.

Perfect day for a round of golf at the Manawatu Golf Club sponsors day. Denis, James and Jacob from the #SportandRugbyInstitute teamed up with Brad Cassidy from Sport Manawatu, but unfortunately Team SRI fell outside the medals.
Here is the team before teeing off on the SRI-sponsored 5th hole.
