Te Whariki, a 118ha subdivision in Lincoln, is backing the Rams, and the club will wear the name on their new jerseys. “With Te Whariki being on the doorstep of the township, it makes perfect sense for us to continue building relationships within the community,” Te Whariki development manager Shannon Goldsmith said. Lincoln University Sport and Recreation Centre manager Peter Magson said Lincoln University rugby is proud of the association with Te Whariki and is grateful for the opportunity to develop and grow the young men and women who play rugby at the university. “With a large increase in players, the relationship with Te Whariki is very timely,” Magson said. Goldsmith, a stalwart of Canterbury rugby, is looking forward to following the Ram’s successes. On Saturday Lincoln continued their unbeaten start to the season with a 58-12 win over Burnside.
