The Otago Boys’ High School First XV (wearing pink socks) faces the King’s High School First XV haka at King’s on Saturday.

It was one of many OBHS teams wearing pink socks during the interschool which was held last week.

The socks were worn to raise awareness about bullying and to celebrate the diverse culture within the school’s community.

The OBHS First XV won the game 13-8, clinching the interschool 7-6.
