Breakers to host Bullets in pre-season

NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 25/07/2016

The New Zealand Breakers will host the Brisbane Bullets in a three-game pre-season series in September.

The four-time champions will face the Brisbane side returning to the NBL after a seven-season absence.

Several members of the visiting squad have a former Breakers connection, including head coach Andrej Lemanis, his assistant CJ Bruton and chief executive Richard Clarke.

A strong Bullets roster includes several current or former Australian internationals, along with former Breaker Reuben Te Rangi.

The games are in Tauranga (September 13), Napier (September 15) and Invercargill (September 17).

The traditional pre-season Blitz tournament is in Brisbane a week later before the Breakers open their season at home to Melbourne United on October 7.
