Smith in NZ Marist XV


West Coast Heartland and Greymouth Marist rugby player Nathan Smith has been selected to play in the New Zealand Marist XV.
The side will play a New Zealand Heartland XV at the Alpine Energy Stadium, in Timaru on November 9.
Smith’s inclusion comes after some good form for his club this year, and follows on from his selection to the New Zealand Marist Colts side last year, in which he played a starring role.
Greymouth Marist spokesman Gus Heveldt said it was an honour for the club.
“Nathan has been an outstanding player for us these past few years, and it’s a rich reward for his form and his commitment to our club, the senior side and West Coast rugby”, Heveldt said.
