Archibalds Land Rover is incredibly proud to continue our support for the Christ’s College 1st XV Rugby Team in the 2022 season. This year, we presented our brand new 2022 Range Rover Velar to 1st XV head coach Ross Kennedy. An upgrade from last year’s Range Rover Discovery, the Velar brings a fresh look to the 2022 championship fight.

An extremely great season last year brought a lot of emotion, with a thrilling final resulting in a 22-20- finish to Nelson college. Although not quite taking home the 1st place trophy, the boys put on an incredible display of heart and determination. An enthusiastic Ross shared with us his excitement for the 2022 season, with the boys being ready to fight for the 2022 Championship.

To celebrate our on-going partnership, we hosted the team and their families in our Land Rover showroom, to catch up with each other and announce the team captains for the 2022 season. Executive principle, Garth Wynne, offered some great words of encouragement to the team in a speech filled with wisdom and excitement.

Stephen Dods also joined us on the night as master in-charge of the 1st XV to present two jerseys to our dealership and business managers, Anthony Kearns and Andre Heyns. Anthony was gifted the number 7 jersey, in honour of being the captain of the team here at Archibalds. As a former rugby player himself, Anthony is proud to back the Christ’s College team, and is looking forward to watching the first game of the 2022 season.
