All Blacks Jimmy Cowan and Tom Donnelly are among six Highlanders running a skills session for junior players in Queenstown on Tuesday.

The session, for registered players up to 13 years old, has been organised by new Highlanders sponsor, Queenstown-based Locations Realty.

Other Highlanders attending are former All Black Tony Brown, Kenny Lynn, Brayden Mitchell and John Hardie, along with manager Leicester Rutledge, marketing manager Doug McSweeney and commercial manager Mike Kerr.
