The Steel were in Central Otago for a team-building weekend and visited various schools - with Remarkables Primary School one of the lucky ones to get a visit from a few players on Friday.

Before taking the school's netballers outside to put them through training exercises, the Steel players were asked questions by pupils, such as what was their favourite holiday destination, favourite food and how often were they allowed to eat sugar.

Remarkables Primary School principal Debbie Dickson said netball was a popular sport at the school, with about 15 teams.
