Hawkes Bay Schoolboy Rugby



  • We're knocking over everybody by big scores at the moment (but no Super 8 teams faced so who knows where we sit) but you know we'll lose 7-5 to Napier Boys and then they wont win another game all season.
     
    Oh, by we, I mean Hastings Boys.



  • Ginnit and Nepia will be further encouraged by the results from yesterday in matched played in Gisborne. Can't locate the official score but saw it last night when looking for something else and recall it was a bit of a pasting with Hastings racking up over 50 points. Will keep trying to find the score and post them here if I can locate them
    Hastings BHS v St. Patricks College Silverstream
    Napier BHS 10 - 17 Scots College
    Gisborne BHS 31 - 19 Wellington College
    St. Patricks College Kilbirnie v Palmerston Nth BHS



  • Remaining results from 21/5:
     
    Hastings BHS 52 - 0 St Pat's Silverstream
    Palmerston North BHS 27 - 23 St Pats Wellington



  • The first Central North Island game of the season was played on Wednesday.
     
    Lindisfarne College beat St John's College (Hastings) 40-5. This score probably says more about St John's than Lindisfarne?



  • Super 8 results from 11/6:

  • Nepia and Gibbit will be well pleased with that result (even more meritorious with it being an away fixture) as will Stockcar86 at his outfit's spin out in form with a victory over a very good Gisborne side.
     
    Looks like it will be a fiercely contested clash in Akina next weekend when the two sides front up against each other!

    After 3 rounds, Lindisfarne in the bottom 3, and St John's at the absolute bottom of the table (St John's with only 2 games played; they had the bye this weekend).



  • Yes, Hastings Boys avoided the banana skin local derby this week (closer scoreline than most of their games this year though).
     
    Cheers for the update Crusadergaz Stargazer. 🙂



  • Played 10, won 10, so far this year for Hastings BHS, I believe.



  • HURRICANES UNDER-18 SQUAD NAMED FOR COACHING CAMP23.06.2016
     Sixty players have been selected for the Hurricanes Under-18 coaching camp in Masterton for a week of high performance coaching and life education skills.
     The four-day camp will include sessions with a range of top provincial coaches as well as the Hurricanes Investec Super Rugby coaching staff headed by Chris Boyd and John Plumtree.
     The Hurricanes Under-18 squad chosen for the four-day camp represents a wide spread of talent from across the Hurricanes region with schools represented in Wellington (19), Hawke's Bay (14), Poverty Bay (9), Manawatu (5), Whanganui (4), East Coast (2), Horowhenua and Wairarapa Bush (1 each).
     Hastings Boys High School will be the school most heavily represented at the camp with ten players, followed by Gisborne Boys High School (9), Palmerston North Boys High School (5) and Rongotai College (4).
     The squad also includes two players from Auckland's St Kentigern's College in halfback Carlos Price and lock/loose forward Te Ahiwaru Cirikidevita, who are selected under their provincial banners of Wellington and East Coast respectively.
     Hurricanes Under-18 convenor of selectors Darren Larsen said it was an extremely tough job trying to sort through 257 nominations.
     "We are very lucky with the amount of talented young players in the region and we've been impressed by the quality of the rugby we've seen this season, but it certainly makes it tough for the selectors.
     "Every provincial union in the region has a selector and I'm are confident they've been very thorough in identifying our best young talent. 
     "But I would also say that this squad is only one pathway and history has shown that players who miss out at this stage can still achieve their goals and make it to New Zealand representative teams or Super Rugby by continuing to push their case on the field.
     The 60-strong squad will assemble in Masterton on Sunday, July 10.
     Following the camp, 23 players will be selected to travel to Christchurch to play the Crusaders Under-18s at AMI Stadium on Saturday, July 16 as the curtain raiser to the Hurricanes-Crusaders Investec Super Rugby match.
     "It's also worth noting that players who do not attend the camp can still be selected in the final team."

    Hastings far ahead of the rest on the Super 8 table after beating no. 2 Rotorua today! Can't wait to find out how they're going to do against schools from other regions/competitions. Could this be their year to win the national final?

    Okay, Lindisfarne hasn't been great, but St John's has been utterly terrible thus far. How are schools selected for this competition? I wonder whether it's time to replace St John's with another HB school?



  • Cheers for the update Stargazer. They're looking good. Considering they've rolled the best that Wellington have got, all the Super 8 so far and the odd Auckland 1A team they've played this is easily shaping up as the best years since Hika and Alby in 2003/4ish. Hopefully they can keep the form going at least until the Top 4 (and winning the Super 8 of course).
     
    The Central North Island schools were originally a self formed group of teams in the Super 8 region - I'm not sure how they're selected as I don't remember Wesley being there originally. I doubt any other HB school will do any better - the coeds can't be too strong at the moment as Napier Boys and the 3 Hastings boys schools must suck up all the talent.



  • This is the first year that Wesley has been included in the CNI comp. They've just added a team without throwing one out, so now each week one team has a bye. No idea how that came about and why.
     
    I've never seen them play, but how good/bad are schools like Wairoa or Te Aute?

    No idea about Wairoa but expect they'll be pretty bad. Te Aute don't have the roll to be competitive anymore.
     
    Make sense for Wesley to join, they're shut out of Auckland and Hamilton, Tauranga and Rotorua are all in Super 8. I expect Wesley to win this comp a few times.



  • From today's Dominion Post ...
     
    Hastings BHS starting to gather headlines. No doubt the vultures (euphemism for provincial scouts) will be interested in having a look. Hopefully the Hawke's Bay RU will be in first.

    Thanks to Napier beating Rotorua, Hastings is now certain of a spot in the Super 8 final. Funny thing is that Hastings' last opponent in the round robin, Hamilton, is also the most likely opponent for the final.

    Thanks to Hastings winning all their games is more accurate - typical Napier Boys trying to steal all the glory even in their average years. 😉
     
    WTF is up with St Johns? You don't default in these competitions, that's just poor form.

    Obviously, Hastings reach the finals due to all their wins this season. But it is thanks to Napier beating Rotorua, that they are already certain of their spot in the final this week, instead of next week. Napier beating Rotorua was not at all expected, considering they have indeed been quite average since 2014. I think they deserve a tiny little pat on the back for that win.  :yes:

    I'll have pins inserted in my testicles before I give Napier Boys a tiny pat on the bat for that win!
