Dunedin resident Lynnette Scott called her son as soon as she
heard her entry had been picked from 700 others in the draw
for the Highlanders jersey giveaway.
She told her son, Sam Thompson (11), that with the new 2013
Highlanders jersey were four new Highlanders scarfs and a
family pass to watch the Highlanders play rugby.
''For which game,'' Sam replied.
''For all of them,'' she said about the season tickets for
two adults and two children.
The new jersey design included the franchise districts and
was much better-looking than the green Highlanders jersey,
Both her children were avid touch rugby players and enjoyed
passing a rugby ball around with Highlanders prop Chris King
after he presented the prize.
