Proudly Supporting Tasman Rugby


E’stel Tasman Trophy

The TRU is proud to present the E’stel Tasman Trophy Final this Saturday on Trafalgar Park, to be contested by Waimea Old Boys and Marist. It is fitting that the best performed two Clubs in the competition will contest the Final.

Waimea Old Boys defeated Waitohi 37 – 22 at Jubilee Park to reach the Final. Fourth placed Waitohi showed a lot of fortitude before succumbing to the minor premiers.

In the other semi-final, Marist put on the razzle dazzle, in the first half especially, to run out comfortable victors 71 – 34 over Wanderers at Trafalgar Park.

These two clubs battled out a 26-all draw the last time they met in Round 8, so the Final should be as equally epic. 

There will be a Festival of Rugby on Trafalgar Park with 4 matches being played:

- 3.00pm - E'Stel Tasman Trophy FINAL: Waimea Old Boys v Marist
- 1.30pm - Car Company Nelson Bays Div 1: Kahurangi v Nelson
- 12.15pm - U13: Marist v Waimea Old Boys
- 11.00am - U13: Nelson v Moutere

See you at the Park!
