Elijah Fonoti to tour with New Zealand Marist Colts

After an outstanding season in his first year out of St Patrick's College, Colts centre Elijah Fonoti has been selected for the annual New Zealand Marist Colts tour. The side which features some of the best Under 21 talent across the New Zealand Marist Federation will play three games against other Marist clubs before a final match against the New Zealand Harlequins Under 21s in Hamilton on 26 August.

Elijah's coach Edwin Meachen speaks very highly of him, 'he's a fast, strong midfielder and is a good decision maker. He has played at a consistently high standard all year and is well deserving of the opportunity to play with the best young talent of the Marist Federation.'

The side assembles in Auckland on Friday then play games in Te Awamutu, Tauranga and Rotorua before their final game in Hamilton.
