He plays cricket for Otago Country and Dunstan High School teams and has to travel into Alexandra for training as well as to games which can be in Alexandra, Cromwell or Queenstown.
He has been playing sport "pretty much since I started school" and said he did not think the travel was too bad.
His mother, Julie Pyle, echoed Reuben's comments: "We're quite used to it. It's just a part of it if your kids want to play sport.
