New Zealand Touch Down for Trans Tasman

Touch New Zealand's three Touch Blacks teams have made their way across the Tasman for the highly-anticipated Test Series against Australia.

The contingent are presently in camp at the Sydney Institute of Sport in Narrabeen, Sydney before making their way to Mudgee later in the week for the three-day Trans Tasman Test Series.

New Zealand's squads offer a mixture of experience and youth with each and every player committed to bringing the gold back home in one week's time.
