Nelson Bays look to move up
New Zealand
November 6, 1999

NPC Second Division champions Nelson Bays will, after all, apply to join the First Division in 2000.
The Bays' title victory had given them the option of promotion but officials were undecided about the wisdom, on financial and playing grounds, of a commitment which could prove beyond their resources at this stage.

However, chief executive Peter Barr has announced that a meeting with NZRFU officials had given his union a much better understanding of the criteria it had to meet for participation in the top flight.

The union will now be applying for admission to the First Division. "We want to aspire to the highest level, there is no point in aiming for mediocrity," said Barr.
