Miles Toyota: Proudly Supporting the Canterbury Rugby FPC Team

The Canterbury Rugby Football Union is a pillar of the Canterbury sports community and one that Miles Toyota has been proud to support for many years. As the official Partner of Canterbury Rugby, we’ve been backing the Canterbury Rugby FPC team throughout the season, adding value to games and providing vehicles to staff and team members.

With the FPC season drawing to a close following a well-fought battle against our North Island rivals we thought it was the perfect time to reflect on just a few highlights of 2023.

Player of the Week Hilux

Earlier in the year we were thrilled to hand over the keys to the all-new Player of the Week Hilux to the FPC team. Throughout the season the well-deserving Player of the Week got to enjoy the Hilux, which resulted in plenty of adventures and photo opportunities!

Congratulations to this season’s recipients:

  • vs Wellington – Emma Dermody
  • vs Waikato – Grace Brooker
  • vs Bay of Plenty – Karla Wright-Akeli
  • Development vs Otago Development – Kalesi Taga
  • vs Hawke’s Bay – Martha Mataele
  • vs Counties Manukau – Laura Bayfield
  • vs Auckland – Georgia Ponsonby
  • Semi Final vs Hawke’s Bay – Holly Wratt-Groeneweg

Miles Toyota Club Round Doubleheader

A highlight of the season was the Miles Toyota Club Round Doubleheader, which saw both the NPC and FPC teams win against their Northern rivals. It was here that we launched the Miles Toyota Hilux TeeRunner, which not only had the honour of bringing the match ball out but also led the Club Parade.

We were also thrilled to bring back the iconic Take A Kid To Footy offering for 2023, giving children the opportunity to pick out fruit, drinks, and snacks in a market-like stall to enjoy during the match, which went down a treat!

Runner-ups of the season

Congratulations to the Canterbury Rugby FPC team who placed second in the 2023 Farah Palmer Cup following a hard-fought battle against Auckland Rugby. We’ll continue to get our rugby fix with the ongoing National Provincial Championship, proudly supporting the Canterbury Rugby Men’s NPC team as they aim to take back the trophy.
