Hawkes Bay Schoolboy Rugby



  • @Number-10

    This one has already been played; I assume the only one Napier Boys will win in the local derby:

    Napier Boy's U15 69, Hasting's Boy's U17 0

    I have no idea about a cup or trophy they play for. Will be a good game to watch; so disappointing this game is not on tv this year!



  • Super 8:
    Napier Boys HS 3, Hastings Boys HS 38

    Central North Island:
    Lindisfarne College 0, Wesley College 27

    I'm glad that Hastings didn't smash Napier as much as other schools this year. Don't want our second school to be too much behind. Would love them to be the nos. 1 and 2 in Super 8, but I'm not sure where Napier sits compared to the other Super 8 schools. They're definitely better than last year.



  • @Stargazer Personally I'm disappointed we let them get 3. 😉

    This forum needs a downvote button...



  • What happened, did Napier have a few guys ordered off?

    Selected in the Chiefs U18, so lost to the Magpies:
    Jeriah Mua (BOP)

    Just read on FB that Kini Naholo (who may be too old for any U18 squad, considering he's already 18) is a Chiefs rather than a Canes prospect, and also a Hastings prop (not sure who). Haven't seen any confirmation of this, but I'm not happy about Naholo if it's true. Had hoped seeing him in the black & white jersey one day.



  • This week's results:

    Super 8:
    Hastings BHS 53 - 0 Rotorua BHS
    Napier BHS 8 - 55 Hamilton BHS

    Central NI:
    Wanganui Coll 17 - 19 Lindisfarne Coll
    Te Aute 7 - 41 Francis Douglas MC
    St John's 0 - 15 Rathkeale Coll

    No real surprises, I think.



  • ouch 😞 NBHS



  • @Stockcar86 Just read on their FB page that 8 players from the NBHS 1st XV team were unavailable due to injury, including their captain Josh Bokser and vice-captain Humphrey Sheild. Not sure whether they could have beaten Hamilton if these players had been available, but surely the score wouldn't have been that bad.

  • @Stargazer
    We toured and played blackrock when I was at Lindisfarne. Really crazy history I think they had won about 90/110 ireland schools comps. Had about 1400 and 42 rugby teams. Think they beat us by about 20 points....ironically they asked if we were one of the top schools in the bay. We were like yeah HBHS only beat us by about 80 and NBHS by about 55.

  • @Magpie_in_aus Bit early for stuff like that to be posted. 😉



  • @Nepia that was stolen from an ex HBHS boy so don't blame me its them drinking the Kool aid! Pretty amazing though isn't it. Considering that doesn't include the Naki game the other day and potentially some others and pretty sure the 50 points includes 3 games in 7 days

    I'm just hoping they can go all the way this year!



  • @Nepia what still hurts more 2016 or 2004?



  • @Magpie_in_aus 2004 - I know the coach of that team pretty well and they were cruising before half time.
