  • @Stargazer Can you please correct what appears to be an obvious mistake in the third named finalist for the player of the year award thanks?

  • Awesome effort Hugh Taylor (Wairoa College). I know nothinhg about this player but once again it just shows that you can get recognition if you are good enough no matter where you play.



  • Result of today's game:

    Blues U18 20 - 10 Hurricanes U18

    Coping with underfoot conditions reminiscent of Test Match Rugby at Murrayfield and a high-penalty count, proved too challenging for a spirited Hurricanes Under 18 team, who were defeated by the Blues Under 18 side by 20 points to 10, at Owen Delaney Park in Taupo today.
    
    In a stop-start game played in windy and chilly conditions, the Blues took a 10 point to 3 lead into the half-time break. After 65 minutes the teams were locked at 10 all, but in the last 10 minutes the Blues scored a converted try and a penalty-kick (on the full-time whistle) to win the match.
    
    For the Hurricanes, Treyah Kingi-Taukamo (St. Kentigern's College) kicked a penalty and conversion, with the team's solitary try scored by full-back, Rodderick Solo (Scots College).
    


  • So with BB off, who do we have for 1st5's?
    Will we be able to do any last minute recruiting, I don't think there is anyone available.
    Does that leave us with F Smith and JGB?

    I will ask my religious mates to pray that there are!
