This week we have the two top teams going head to head in the Premier Division and if we can get the win it will see us take the prize for winning round one. The Craig Eaton Cup is also up for grabs, and so far we have not let Coastal get their hands on it and we are quite keen to keep it that way. So down the coast, we go with buses leaving Tukapa at 11.15 and 12.15 and then leaving coastal after the games at 4.30pm and 8.30pm with two stops on way home. Supporters welcome $5 each.
Our Division 1 and Colts have both picked up back-to-back wins and are building momentum quite nicely, I am sure we have what it takes to keep this momentum going. The Senior Thirds are off to Clifton and are looking to start moving their way up the table and with encouraging numbers at Thursday training they are on the right path.
We hope to see you all on the sidelines this week. But if you can’t be there, make your way down to the club and hopefully, the Live stream will come through from 2.45pm.
The Premiers are still working hard on selling beanies and have a few left to go so please hit them up and support their fundraiser.
Some maybe aware the Taranaki Rugby Union have a survey out at the moment focusing on the future of club rugby and how people would like our game shaped for the next 10 years.
Please take 5 minutes to fill out the survey to register your say. We as Chairpersons are relying on this survey to help make a call on shorter seasons and night rugby for example.
