Rugby club on the rise

Kapi-Mana News - - SPORT - By KRIS DANDO

The rugby sea­son is well and truly over but Tawa RFC are al­ready look­ing to­wards 2013 with rel­ish.

Club cap­tain Al­lan David­son says the club is in good heart, able to re­flect on ex­cel­lent re­sults on the field and plenty of sup­port­ers at­tend­ing the first team’s games, home and away.

The pres­i­dents and un­der- 85s were ‘‘al­ways com­pet­i­tive’’ in their re­spec­tive grades, mak­ing semi­fi­nals, as did the se­nior firsts, while the top side’s spir­ited run in Swin­dale Shield and Ju­bilee Cup play was great for the club, David­son says.

The ic­ing on the cake was the Colts’ win­ning the division two Vic Cal­ci­nai Cup, which bodes well for the un­der-21 play­ers com­ing through. Se­nior Moli and Michael Finau did a su­perb job as coaches, David­son says.

‘‘Ev­ery­one’s ab­so­lutely rapt with the sea­son when you look at the over­all pic­ture, the sup­port for our teams is bet­ter than it’s ever been. The Colts had a top year all the way through and it’s now im­por­tant that we keep these guys in the club.’’

He hopes there might be a se­nior third team in 2013.

Steve So’oialo, who was an in­spi­ra­tional player on the park for the first team, is also likely to be re­in­stated as their coach for next sea­son.

Tawa RFC’s an­nual gen­eral meet­ing is on this Fri­day from 7.30pm at the clu­b­rooms at Lyndhurst Park.
