Sharp Blacks Get Ready for the Tri-Nations

Sharp Blacks Get Ready for the Tri-Nations


Pure South Sharp Blacks

Our national butchery team diced up their final practice yesterday proving they have got what it takes to defend their title against Australia and England next month.
This year our team of six top butchers, the Pure South Sharp Blacks, travel to Yorkshire, England to compete in the Tri-Nations Butchers’ Challenge.

After many months of refining their skill, the Pure South Sharp Blacks performance at their last practice, held at Wilson Hellaby in Auckland, has confirmed just how promising our national team is.

“We are feeling really, really good. Three weeks to go and the adrenaline is pumping,” says team Captain Corey Winder.

The Tri-Nations Butchers’ Challenge will allocate each team two hours to turn a side of beef and a whole lamb into value added meals, creating over 50 impressive products similar to what you would see in top shelf butchery.

To make it into the Pure South Sharp Blacks team, applicants from around the country were selected after a nomination and trial process.

The team is managed by Hellers founder, Todd Heller, who will also be travelling to the UK with the team.
