Great to see everyone at home last weekend and the club pumping again! Week three here we come, with CFC (Castiron Fried Chicken) for tea on Thursday night the boys are ready to jump on the bus and head down the coast with all four teams playing Coastal. Supporters are welcome to join the players on any of the buses with the times below.
This week I think we set a new record with our bench for the Premiers having a combined number of caps of 630 Premier games. And we still have a lot of experience on the field as well. Luke Dravitski will lead the boys out onto the field this Saturday as he notches up his 50th game. We also welcome back Mitchell Crosswell on the bench after taking last season off. Another lad that we all cannot wait to see back on the field is Nathaniel Peters who will have a trot with the NZ Sparky Div 1 team this Saturday.
The club takes this opportunity to express sincere condolences to Janet Fleming (Coastal Chairperson) on the sudden passing during the week of her husband. We are all thinking of her at this difficult time.
