We are only 4 weeks out from kick off and we are encouraged by the great numbers attending training. All 4 afternoon teams are looking strong.
The week before our first game of the season we have our annual fixture against Poneke at home so this will enable all members and supporters to become familiar with the clubrooms once again and check out the work carried out pre-season to upgrade our team facilities.
Your Egmont Seeds Tukapa Premier Squad 2021 is as follows:
|Ricky Riccitelli||Ethan Seed|
|Liam Bernet||Hayden Chamberlain|
|Jackson Clarke||Tom Cutler|

The coaching staff and management have named 32 players ….. this includes Ricky Riccitelli, Chris Jollands , Mitchell Crosswell , Lukas Halls , Jacob Kneepkens who are all out due to Super Rugby or injury. Locki Jones, Alex Perry and Jack Spicer will also train with the Premiers.
As most members and supporters are aware we have a number of projects underway at Tukapa and we are calling for support on Saturday 19th March from 8am to 4pm in the form of a working bee to try and complete some of these jobs. We plan to trench our cables for the lights, lay the rubber flooring in hallway downstairs, paint new changing room area, paint walls in Ash’s bar and do a general clean up, so if you are available to stop by and give us a few hours that would be great.
