Taranaki Steelfab Development Team




Coaches: Kelvin McDowell and Joe Lawn

Principal Sponsor: Steelfab Limited (Ron McLeod, Managing Director)

The Steelfab Taranaki Development team is the stepping stone for our future ITM Cup players. These players are essentially the Port Taranaki Bulls reserves - they could be called on at any time, due to injury and/or form to step up into the ITM Cup.

They play a series of preseason matches before participating in the highly competetive Northern Regions Development Competition against the likes of Northland, Auckland, North Harbour, Counties Manukau, Waikato and Bay of Plenty.

Steelfab Limited have a strong passion for Taranaki Rugby and have had an association with the Development team since 2010.
