Senior Competition Reviews

In Motorworld Marlborough Division 1 semi-final action, Moutere produced an irresistible second half surge to comfortably overcome Central 47-14 and book their berth in the Final decider. Renwick went toe-to-toe with Waitohi before gaining late ascendancy at Lansdowne Park to emerge 29-20 victors.

CEO Chat with Tony Lewis

There is nothing like Final week for those teams who make it to the dance floor. This week is very special for the club, coaches and for those players lucky enough to participate in Final. I hope all teams enjoy the experience and leave nothing on the pitch. This weekend we have some intriguing battles in both the Motorworld Marlborough and The Car Company Nelson Bays competitions.

Awatere Fundraiser

The match on Thursday 10 August will serve as both a pre-season workout for the Makos and Lions, and as a fundraiser for the Awatere clubrooms re-build.
