It was a unique pre-season Super 15 Rugby clash. The Hurricanes against the Chiefs in front of about 10,000 fans on Neil Symonds back paddock next door to Mangatainoka’s own Tui Brewery.
The Hurricanes went on to beat the Chiefs 35-31 who perhaps needed a little fertiliser added to grow their game ahead of the Super Rugby season, starting on 18 February.
New Zealand’s fastest growing fertiliser company Summit Quinphos is pleased to be associated with Tui Brewery’s sponsorship of the big game because footy is a vital part of New Zealand culture – almost as important as farming.
“New Zealand needs its farmers and farmers need grass, which is where Summit Quinphos enters the scene,” explains Summit Quinphos General Manager Willie Thomson.
“As our Tui Brewery-inspired billboard claims, New Zealand would be fine without farmers, footy and fertiliser... Yeah right.
“New Zealand can’t do without its farmers and Summit Quinphos is proud of its association with the pre-season Super 15 match which linked the land with the other thing we can’t do without, especially in the year of the Rugby World Cup – our footy.”
Summit Quinphos has 45 field reps throughout the country focused on ensuring New Zealand’s farmers can worry less about making the grass grow and have more time to enjoy a good game of rugby as the season kicks off.
