Te Puke Gold win Western Bay title
The Te Puke Gold under-10 rugby team followed in the footsteps of Te Puke Sports Premier and Development teams, taking out the Under 10 Western Bay final.
The junior teams have stepped up with three teams making the semifinals this year — under-13s, under-12s and under-10s.
The under-10 team went on to win their division against Mount Green on Saturday in a nail-biter.
Te Puke Sports dominated in the first half, with their Green rivals mounting a comeback in the second half.
Te Puke came out winners 44-39. The team was well supported and the club thanked the community, supporters and coaches for their contribution to junior rugby over the past year.
