The 2014 Steelfab Taranaki Development team, under the guidance of coaches Kelvin McDowell and Joe Lawn continues to develop Taranaki Rugby players for higher honours.
In 2014 the development competition will again be vital in providing meaningful representative game time for Taranaki Rugby’s next tier of players. These players are essentially the A Team reserves - they could be called on at any time, due to injury and/or form to step up and help us in the quest for ITM Premiership glory!
The 2014 Development Team will again be sponsored by Steelfab Limited and its Managing Director, Ron McLeod. Ron has a real passion for Taranaki Rugby and in particular the Development team, who he has had an association with since 2010.
Please support Ron and the Steelfab business wherever possible.
