Unison and Joe Penitito from the Hawkes Bay Magpies made a surprise visit to see our 'Greatest Supporter for August', Sam Start and his classmates at St. Patrick's School in Napier last Friday, after Sam successfully completed his mission for the month of August.
During his visit, Joe gave the class a brief rundown on what it is like to play for the Hawke's Bay Magpies, his favourite rugby game so far and what he likes to eat, while Room 14 put him through his paces with lots of interesting questions.
Sam also presented Joe with a huge number of messages of support for the Hawke's Bay Magpies - which Sam had collected as part of his mission for the month.
At the end of the month, these messages will be turned into the giant banner which Sam will help to hang at McLean Park for everyone to see! Way to go Sam!
