Tawa Rugby Club on a mis­sion


2013 could

well be the sea­son for Tawa to re­mem­ber, if the pre-sea­son train­ing is any­thing to go by. The player num­bers are con­sid­er­ably more that at this time in past sea­sons. Al­ready there are good signs of reg­u­lar com­pe­ti­tion for po­si­tions. Coaches and man­agers are well-po­si­tioned for the Premiers, Firsts, Colts, 85’s, a pos­si­ble Re­serve side and, of course, the “Ev­er­green” Prezzies. Last sea­son saw the Premiers play in the Ju­bilee Cup for the first time in some years. The team had the be­lief that to train, act and play at a higher level was what got re­sults. As all clubs well know, in­juries of­ten oc­cur at the Pre­mier and First grade lev­els. It is a mas­sive trib­ute to Tawa’s coaches that as a min­now club, it was able to not only stay com­pet­i­tive, but win matches. The Firsts and 85’s made it to the fi­nals, and were just pipped. The Colts won their Fi­nal along with the Vic Cal­cin­nai Cup. In the off-sea­son the Fi­jian Warriors won the Pres­i­dent’s Cup at the Welling­ton Sev­ens. At the club’s re­cent AGM, Mur­ray Mexted was made a life mem­ber. Mur­ray at­tended the meet­ing and gave a fas­ci­nat­ing re­count of his fam­ily’s involvement with Tawa RFC. His fa­ther Graeme is also a life mem­ber. Pre-sea­son is well un­der­way with train­ing on Tues­days and Thurs­days, start­ing at 6.30pm. Ju­nior reg­is­tra­tion is 6pm, March 1 and March 5 at the clu­b­rooms. If you re­quire fur­ther in­for­ma­tion to play, spon­sor or be in­volved with Tawa Rugby Club in any way, con­tact: Al­lan G. David­son, Club Cap­tain, 021 350 202.
