The U-11 squad was one of three RHFA teams entered into the Sydney Youth Cup.
The U-12s lost their final game of the tournament on the last day, with Kyran Lockwood scoring the team’s goal, while the U-10s had already concluded their schedule going into the final day.
All three squads head home to New Zealand after a hectic but fun-filled tour with many friendships made and renewed.
