Congratulations to Luisetti Ashburton staff member, Leauma Tu’uga, who has been selected to play for Mid Canterbury! Uma recently played his first representative match in the Mitre10 Heartland Championship against East Coast.

We’re proud to say Mid Canterbury won 56-7!

Mid Canterbury led 14-7 at half time, and after a penalty try to Mid Canterbury in the second half, the floodgates opened. Uma was one of five Mid Canterbury players hammering home the tries in the second half.

Uma also played against King Country in the last round of the Mitre10 Heartland Championship, and in the Lochore Cup semi-final against HorowhenuaKapiti in Levin!
