Fans are being offered a chance to buy their own piece of Counties Manukau Rugby history with game-worn, one-off throwback jerseys available for purchase on TradeMe. On Sunday, October 2, 2022, the PIC Steelers wore a one-off heritage jersey against Wellington in the Bunnings Warehouse NPC in...
Higgins was great. You'd have to hope him and Lakai are around for years to come in Canes jerseys.
Really happy we keep the Shield over the summer.
After that Northland performance I thought we'd be struggling to make the 4, but been a real turnaround since.
Congrats on the little one canes4life. Nothing better than watching them grow 🙂
Cheers bro, she’s grown a little already in two weeks haha.
The fact we are unbeaten with Aiden Morgan running the cutter shows how important he is to our run for a title. He definitely has a few work ons as he’s still developing but the way he conducts the team has been brilliant. We look like a different team when he’s playing.
fun game, lots of errors but points from both teams made it entertaining. The BoP team were slow to get into this one. The starting forward pack looks good though although TTT's service was so laboured it made TJP look quick. Trask looked ok at 10 and when he got decent ball was a threat, hopefully we don't see him in the fullback jersey again though.
Think both teams can take a few positives out of that one, not polished by any means but enough to keep each set of supporters interested.
Have to say just watching game now as I was at Naki game in Sunday. Bloody entertaining game and have to say I like the look of this young No8 for Wellington.
Lions are going to struggle a bit with their front row, and BOP look to have a reasonably well balanced team.
Centre Willie Lafaele stole Christian Cullen's thunder as a Wellington XV beat Hawkes Bay 38-11 in a representative rugby match on a soggy Maidstone Park in Upper Hutt yesterday.
All Blacks selector Mark Shaw and most of the 1000-plus crowd had come to see All Blacks discard Cullen make New Zealand coach John Mitchell eat humble pie, but left none the wiser after the fullback produced an unconvincing display.
It wasn't that Cullen played badly. He scored a good individual try, sparked several counter-attacks, including engineering a 60-metre effort to wing Sireli Bobo.
But he kicked aimlessly at times and generally appeared to lack the urgency of a player who should be on the brink of World Cup selection.
In contrast, former NZ Colt Lafaele was a ball of energy, outstanding in all aspects of the game.
Looking at the finalc score, it wasn't a close game.
@mikey07 I feel your pain, we've got the players but they just seem like they don't give two shites. They are a rabble and their attitude stinks. I mean half the team were just sitting back and watching on Sunday. Disgraceful.
@Canes4life I totally agree with this statement he offers flair without too much of it if that makes any sense something we need with our forwards, i mean Fidow, Numia Coles Aumua all have it and it’s definitely better then boring hopeless at everything vanilla Prinseep and Blackwell
