Northland 7s



  • If we get a good team on the park we will do well on the National 7s. Liked the look of the guys at Northern Regionals. They took the ball into contact well and retained possession. Melter,Cooper, Matich, and Gregory seemed to be the ones that got the around the park. Thought Matich was fantastic. Hope Gregory comes through for ITM Cup next year. I wonder whether someone like Lawebuka would add to this squad and whether he is available?



  • @kev I guess someone like Matich would play that DJ Forbes type role for us, decent pace, huge motor and just gets about smashing people...might even catch the eye of the NZ 7s coaches?

    Popped along to watch to watch the world secondary schools sevens at Sacred Heart College yesterday,whilst Scott Gregory was'nt as prominent as he was last week for the Northland sevens,he showed on many occassions,he has great strength,and very good pace,that could see him end up as 2nd five or centre,has a powerful left foot punt,standing beside him,stands around 6 foot plus,i am picking hes around 95kgs,similar build to Anton Lienart Brown,agree with Kev regarding Gregory,will be a great aquistion for the Taniwha moving foward.
    Waisea Lawabuka should be available for the Nationals,has a shoulder injury at the minute,
    Brady Rush and Robert Rush are also available selection which is great news,also great to see Whiria Meltzer back in Cambridge Blue,however beacuse under the NZRFU rules,only 2 x loan players can be used,which is absoloute joke,Whria Meltzer being one,the other 2 being Noah Cooper and Adam Simpson who is very swift,both play their rugby in Otago,but are Northland Boys,they can only select
