Go the Mighty Mata!


Pare­mata-Plim­mer­ton Rugby Club is back in full swing for the 2013 sea­son. The club’s Se­nior 1’s were left gut­ted af­ter go­ing down in a heart­break­ing 15-13 de­feat in the Ed Chaney Cup fi­nal last year. How­ever, the boys are back into pre-sea­son train­ing and are hun­gry for more fi­nals ac­tion. His­tory runs deep within the club, which was es­tab­lished in 1959 with the amal­ga­ma­tion of the Pare­mata and Plim­mer­ton clubs. Old Timers Day this year is host­ing a Pare­mata vs Plim­mer­ton ex­hi­bi­tion match in hon­our of the club’s former two en­ti­ties. All are wel­come to join the cel­e­bra­tions. With strong sup­port from the com­mu­nity there is a pos­i­tive, healthy rugby cul­ture ready for any player or sup­porter to make their own, both on and off the field. The boys are weeks into pre-sea­son, but, all jer­seys are still up for grabs with big de­ci­sions to come from re­turn­ing head coach Alphonso Par­sons and his coach­ing team. Along­side a very strong man­age­ment team the Se­nior 1 side has the in­gre­di­ents to go all the way this year. With the first pre-sea­son test and trial against Blen­heim in mid- March, the boys should be gelled and con­di­tioned for round 1. There are plenty of se­nior sides to be in­volved with, from the mighty re­serve grade ParePlim pun­ters to the faster, fit­ter 80- 80s. So for any play­ers or sup­port­ers who have not yet found their place in Welling­ton club rugby or are just look­ing for a change in the 2013 sea­son; find us on Face­book to see what the boys are up to. You can also con­tact club cap­tain Cribby on 021 530742 or Kevin on 027 4686613, or pop in for a chat/run on a Tues­day or Thurs­day evening from 6.30pm. There will be some­one from the club more than happy to point you in the right di­rec­tion.
