The Sports Inc. crew travelled to Palmerston North in March to produce the television coverage of the Ford Ranger NZ Rural Games. This is the sixth year of the popular event and Sports Inc. has been proud to have been involved with each edition.

The two-day celebration of 'sports that built the nation' attracted over 30,000 spectators to the Palmerston North Square located in the heart of the city. Rural athletes included champion wood choppers, sheep shearers, arborists and sheep dog triallists.

Sports Inc. produced a one-hour highlights show of the event. It screened on free-to-air network TV THREE at 5.00pm on Saturday, March 21.
