The posts, which will be officially launched later this year, measure 5.6 metres wide and include a state-of-the-art carbon fibre crossbar. Weighing in at just over eight kilograms, they can be easily carried and transported around.
Despite their rugby prowess, Hurricanes players did not take top honours in the Packaworld challenges. The nearest the pin challenge was won by Metro Glass Lower North Island Sales Manager Karl Rigarlsford.
The event also featured the latest Packagoal Challenge – a time-trial event which sees people compete to inflate a Junior Football Packagoal in the quickest time.
Former Waikato Chiefs and Western Force prop Ben Castle emerged as the new Packagoal Challenge world record holder with an incredible time of 8.65 seconds.
