Want to be our official Shouty Squad?
11 September 2020
Reckon you’ve got what it takes to be our Shouty Squad?
This is your chance to show the people of Southland and Otago – and some of New Zealand’s favourite rugby players – you’ve got the biggest dose of community spirit in the south. Rugby heroes Anton Lienert-Brown and Damian McKenzie (along with our #socialmeds superstar Lu) want to see what you’ve got!
Pack the Park is looking for a class, rugby team, or group of mates to form the guard of honour to welcome our special line-up of players to Invercargill’s Rugby Park this 17 October. The golden requirement? We’re looking for LOUD!
To enter, simply upload a video of your group showcasing the cheer or chant you want to bring to our big game to social media (Facebook or Instagram) using #shoutysquad – and don’t forget to tag the Southland Charity Hospital.
Our all-star judges will be checking out your entries to decide a winner. If your group makes the cut, you’ll score seats in the grandstand at Rugby Park for the Pack the Park game.
Let’s see what you’ve got!
How to enter:
Step one: Organise the shoutiest, spiritiest, loudest group of primary school students (aged years one to eight). Come up with a unique cheer or chant, and polish that routine!
