His experience as a player and game knowledge as a coach is going to be invaluable to Central Rugby going forward. A huge thank you to Frank , Tom & Joel for their efforts in recruiting Sam.

Club rugby starts Saturday March 25 with the Nash Cup.
The same 11 teams from last year's Maddison Trophy will play a full round robin (each team gets one bye) and includes one midweek round - Wednesday April 12 (the Wednesday after Easter).
The top six advance to the Maddison Trophy.

@stockcar86 I note, without a great deal of surprise, that the draw makers have managed to deprive Napier Tech of their rightful home ground advantage in their clash against the combined Napier Old Boys-Marist outfit!

@Higgins The game is not even on the main field at Park Island either

@Stockcar86 That's because it is a 6.30pm kick off and presumably will need the floodlights near the end of the game. Obviously neither the floodlights at Whitmore Park and wherever you combined mob train are adequate. I know Whitmore Park are pretty much third world but there is some sort of bureaucratic reason why they are not being allowed to be upgraded, at this stage anyway.
