Junior Rugby

Another great season in 2016, with 325 players and 22 teams. We are still the biggest junior club in Taranaki.

A number of our teams made the finals and semi-finals at the closing tournament. Unfortunately the Under 6’s tournament got cancelled for the 2nd year in a row, we had some very disappointed kids.

We had a number of under 12 & 13 players picked for the Ross Brown teams. Congratulations to you all. You all played fantastic at the tournament and did Tukapa proud. From those Ross Brown teams we had 2 boys Dylan Cumming and Luke Buttimore make the Taranaki Roller Mills team.

Hoodies continue to be a big hit and it’s great to see them worn to games and school. Watch out for them again next season.

The 2017 season registrations will all be online, you will receive an e-mail closer to the start of the season. All you need to do is update the information and lodge.

Tukapa is also extremely fortunate to have a host of sponsors supporting the club. We thank and acknowledge our sponsors – Thrifty Car Rentals, McDonalds, TBS Coating and Deluxe Diner. The support of these businesses means our players receive a range of benefits and we ask all players and their families to support these sponsors when the opportunity arises.

Finally, we stress that the aim of Tukapa morning grade rugby is to provide an environment where kids can play and enjoy rugby. Our volunteer referees do a fantastic job every Saturday and their efforts do not go unnoticed. We’d like to thank the parents, caregivers and supporters who come along to the games and cheer their kids on.

A big thank you to the junior subcommittee.
