Chairperson's Update

After a week off the newsletter last week due to too many balls in the air, we are back this week. What a week it’s been with our Lion Brown Snr 3rds picking up their 1st win of the year and making sure to send it well into the night. Our NZ Sparky Div 1 managed to beat the unbeaten Southern team in the last minute to go 2nd outright on the table just behind NPOB. Our Gardner Plumbing Colts battled hard but couldn’t get the job done. This week they have some players returning from injury.

With Mitchell running out for his 100th game and Mason for his 50th game the Egmont Seeds Premiers were up to the challenge even tho when I got outside they were 7 points down after 2 mins. This was the only time Southern looked to be on top. From then on it was a one-way street with 8 converted tries to our Premiers.

This week we see our Premiers, Colts, and Div 1 taking on Clifton at home. This week these games mean the world to our teams and can really set them up for home semis if we were to get the “W” this week. Premiers are looking to name a near full-strength team and I think they are up to the challenge to take on a Clifton team that is on top of their game under the leadership of Colin Cooper.

Crab Racing to 80's Party

Last Saturday saw the return of Crab racing to the club after not running since 2018. What a night it was, the boys and girls all really bought into the night and we saw two good races with the JDL/Luke D syndicate taking the first race and the Campbell Lusk led Colts syndicate taking the second race. We also managed to raise $1600 for the club in the process.

This week we see the annual Netball / Rugby Do which is a retro 80’s Party with a happy hour from 7pm to 8pm and prizes for best dressed. This Party is always a good one and we share our bar profit with Netball so be sure to come and support both clubs on Saturday night. DJ Jordy is one not to be missed.

Rangi Komene Memorial

Another date to put in your calendar as a “save the date” is the Rangi Komene Memorial which will be held at Tukapa on the 27th of August. Due to Covid we never gave Rangi the send-off he deserves and with his one-year anniversary coming up now is the time to pay our respects to a great Man. We will get more info out in the coming weeks but we have most of the day planned.

It could be a wet day Saturday but please show your support to our teams, put on your wet weathers then warm up afterward with a Panhead and some chat. See you all Saturday.

Your Chairman Scotty Siffleet, Blue and White for Life
