Maddison Trophy Round 8
+ Beck-Guscott Trophy match

I hate losing. I could go on a diatribe of excuses of why we lost including criticising the referee the touch judges, the opposition, the crowd, the birds in the trees and even the dogs barking at the end of the ground. However, our boys were given a lesson on passion. The green machine pride themselves on playing a fast 100 mile an hour game, unfortunately today we were strangled by a team that have had an extremely solid year.
The game changed lead four times in this match of the giants of HB Rugby but unfortunately, we could not give you a fairytale ending like so many games this year which has now set up for a huge weekend of rugby next week against the village people.

The likelihood of the Green Machine playing Taradale again in two weeks is on the cards and due to the loss yesterday it will be again on their home soil. Taradale had one of their best games of the season according to some of their die-hard fans which put a wee smile on my face as we know we can do much better.
Coach Gowler now has to go back to his bag of tricks and work out a game plan to get us over the line for next week. Each season sends us a number of challenges and this year is no different. Next week again will see us out on the training ground enjoying each other’s company but with a bit more of an edge as the season starts to wind up to a very exciting climax.
I hope you will all join us next week at Anderson Park home of Havelock North for the last round robin game before the business end of the season starts.

Jack Swain Cup

Taradale at Taradale, 4th versus 5th on the table, 2 games to play it was now or never for the Prem Reserves. The boys had this mentality all week and turned up to play which was pleasing to see.
Into the wind for the first 40 the boys kept it tight and worked to the game plan, this saw Adam score under the posts after 4 minutes. The wind proved the factor in Taradale’s first try and after 20 minutes we were 7-5 up but it felt like we had the wood on them. Soon after Junior crossed and a penalty try saw us ahead 21-5, Taradale did hit back before the break but we went in leading 21-12.
Taradale held onto the ball well into the wind striking first to bring it to a 4 point ball game with 20 to play. However our boys looked mentally stronger this week and man of the match Dylan scored twice to put us comfortably ahead. A further try from both sides saw the ref call the game 5 minutes early due to injury with Napier OBM ahead 40-24… conversion to come. Adam again strong off the tee registering 5 from 5, whether he would have made that last conversion, who knows. We might make him kick it just to see, anyway I digress.
Was good to see 21 players stripped, welcome back Jesse. Proud of our boys, the season was on the line and they showed up and put 80 minutes of good rugby out there on Tareha Park, bring on Havelock next week as we fight for a home-semi. Tries Adam, Junior, Penalty try, Dylan (2) and Johnny. Adam 5/5 or 6/6

Ron Parker Memorial Cup
Quarter Finals time and the boys were pumped ready to go. We knew as this was knockout time in our grade and all the other grades were only in round robin phase, the union would appoint a top ref for our game. And probably touchies as well instead of giving them to the Prem games. I heard the ref had a heart attack that morning though, so in true rugby spirit we all played paper scissors rock until someone lost and had to ref.
The game was played at a frantic pace and our superior fitness and stoic defence saw us not concede a try in the second half. It was if a ghost had come onto the field and stopped them in their tracks.
Thanks to the guys who turned up and put their bodies on the line. We can now have a couple of weeks off before preseason training !

THAT a real stalwart of the club Sid McCann passed away last Sunday (2 August) after a lengthy spate of ill health.

The staunch Irishman who had originally hailed from Dublin, on arrival in Auckland initially became a keen supporter of the Auckland Marist Club but living on the North Shore, when a new Marist club over the bridge was mooted he became much more involved and in1989 Sid became a foundation member of the Marist North Harbour Club. A near decade later on moving to Napier in 1997 he naturally teamed up with Napier Old Boys Marist where it didn’t take long for Sid, an accountant to offer his services to his new club and in 1999 he was elected onto the board as the Director of Finance under chairman Phil Beck. He held this role for five years through to 2003 which was an especially busy period that saw the club move from its base at McLean Park and build and establish our new clubroom and facilities at Tremain Field, Park Island.

Following his election as Vice President of the club in 2006 Sid has remained a keen regular supporter and has regularly attended club events and trophy presentation dinners etc. And of course followed with interest come rain, hail or shine our teams and especially the clubs Premier XV. Director of Club management Wade Colville-Smith will now have to find another Irishman – probably Joe Kelly to takeover off Sid’s regular tipple from the stock of Jameson’s Irish Whiskey that has been tucked away for safe keeping behind the bar.

A Requiem Mass for Sid was held at St Thomas More Catholic Church last Wednesday which was well attended by family, friends as well as a good turnout of Napier Old Boys Marist club members. We will miss you Sid. R.I.P.

THAT a special reminder to our loyal supporters as the pressure is now on to achieve as the last Maddison Trophy round robin game next Saturday which will again be an away match vs Havelock North out at Anderson Park, Havelock North – After yesterdays result ity is even more important that YOUR SUPPORT is with our Premiers and Reserves if we are to make the playoffs. Make Sure YOU get along to this game and lend your vocal support as well as your presence to let Chris and his boys know that you are right there with them – Go the ‘Green Machine’.

THAT the passing of Sid McCann brought back memories of the ‘special’ Marist number plates which initially hit the road back in 1988 when life member Joe Kelly formerly from Skerries, Co Dublin was the Napier Marist club President. So the ‘friends of JK’ chipped in and purchased the original set of ‘MARIST’ number plates for his car. The late Sid McCann another proud Marist Man when he arrived in Napier in the nineties decided that would get himself a set also, but as the original Marist was taken Sid came up with ‘MARI5T’. Very original. We are also aware that a member of the Invercargill Marist RFC is also in on the act and has obtained ‘MAR1ST’. Nothing better than proud Marist club members Flying the Flag…

THAT an important message to our rugby, netball and football players and supporters >>> Make Sure YOU get back to the clubrooms each Saturday for our regular aftermatch functions and 200 Club draws etc. It is a great opportunity to catch up with your fellow club members, share a convivial refreshment of your choice plus some tasty morsels from Rick & Sues kitchen and chew over the afternoons games and results. Also be entertained by Chairman Terry’s repartee and take on the afternoons games and results Members >>> Make Sure you are there….

THAT our onboard chefs Rick & Sue wish to extend their THANKS to our members and families who have been supporting the continuation of their popular Thursday Night Roasts. They also look forward to seeing you all once again on Thursday 13 August Pass the word around to your team mates and members to come along for a great meal.

Remember >>> This year we will be taking your order which will need to be placed by Wednesdays >>> text or pmsg SUE 0272 955 033.

THAT the following Flashback was received from HBRU statistician Adrian Hill following last weekends NOBM Premiers high scoring win against Tamatea with the comment; ‘I see Liam Edwards scored a 90 metre try.’ And he sent the following snippet from the ‘HB Herald Tribune’ match report of the game played at McLean Park on Saturday June 17, 1939 between Napier Marist v Hastings Celtic.
Celtic leading 11-5, Marist first-five Maurice Hutchinson attempted a drop goal (worth four points then). Celtic winger Ray Fox snapped up the kick five yards from his own line and sprinted down the sideline … to score between the posts … and the applause he received as he came back was the greatest ovation given a player in a club game in a long time. Celtic won 19-8 (‘HB Herald Tribune’, 19 June, 1939)

THAT here is another old Irish proverb – No matter how many rooms you have in your house you can only sleep in one bed.

THAT club member extend our best wishes for a speedy recovery to long term club member Brent Clements following his very recent health scare.

THAT an update to all ticket holders in the clubs annual major fundraiser lottery – The first four round of draws have now been made at the clubrooms. There will now be two more rounds of weekly cash draws of $100, $80, $60 – to be followed by three weekly cash draws of 3 x $100 each week.

Then on the 19 September the Final draw consisting of a Travel Voucher to the value of $2700. (This could be held over and used post Covid when the borders reopen if you wish or else use for several trips within New Zealand – winners choice.) In addition there will be a further three draws of $100 each. We wish to Thank all our loyal supporters who have continued to support this annual club lottery. Good Luck….

THAT It’s been a few years since McGoo’s Here and There appeared. With lockdown and no sport happening Eddie offered me a chance to reprise my former sports column that used to appear in the local club and rep rugby programs. I’ve rummaged up some old gems from a few years ago along with a few new bits too.
GLOUCESTER’S . . . new flyhalf Ludovic Mercier is having a few problems with his goal kicking – he’s hoofing the ball too high for officials to tell whether or not the ball has gone through the posts. In fact, his club coach Phillepe Saint-Andre last week ordered the posts at Kingsholm to be extened by five metres to accommodate the former Aurilla No. 10’s mighty boot. Against Leicester, Mercier kicked all his side’s points with six penalty goals but the team crashed 18-40 to the reigning English and European champions. (2001)
IN THE . . . opening seven rounds of this years Tui Maddison Trophy there’s been a total of 291 tries scored including five penalty tries. And there’s been 53 penalties kicked along with 189 conversions. The top teams try scoring wise are still The Green Machine (54), HRS (46), Taradale (37) and Havelock North (31). The top individual points scorer is our own Bain Champion with 74 followed by Cam Robinson, Taradale on 68 and MAC’s Lincoln McClutchie with 67. The Green Machine’s Micheal “The Eel” Buckley is second on the try scoring list with seven touch downs to date. Across the ditch, my eldest grandson Bentley Neilson is up to 23 tries from six games for his Nedlands junior side in Perth so far this season. (2020)
INTERESTING . . . that yesterday’s referee for the Taradale vs NOBM clash Tipene Cottrell was whistling his 50th game of Premier rugby. And last weekend there was probably a first for not only Hawke’s Bay, but New Zealand rugby when Tipene and his wife Krysten were both referee and AR respectively in the Moascar Cup game between Hastings and Napier Boys’ High 1st XVs. The most experienced local Premier referee is Stu Catley with 96 games to his credit. (2020)
WHILE ON . . . about milestones. Last weekend’s clash with Tamatea was my 60th consecutive attendance at a Prems games. Last absence was back in 2016 Nash Cup fixture versus MAC, I was away for a family 21st in Wairoa. (2020)
HERE’S . . . a thought and a bit of fun too with our 30th anniversary on the field coming up in 2021, why don’t we come up with a Napier Old Boys Marist 1st XV since amalgamation? Feel free to contact me with your thoughts to:- (2020)
Cheers McGoo

“Throw a couple and get out is what my Dad taught me.”

“We were just sort of hand-bagging and I got grabbed by everyone and I couldn’t even move my arms.”
Aaron Smith continues.
“The footy is awesome, the content is really good and the games are always close. It’s like test match footy every time [but] I’m not sure it’s sustainable playing New Zealand teams back to back with only two byes.”

After the Action – Mid-week Netball
Tuesday 4 August
A classic Tuesday night of Netball with EHM Evergreens vs EHM Shamrocks. Great to see Tony umpiring the full court and making it to both base lines! Superb effort!!!
Evergreens got out to a lead in the first quarter but Shamrocks weren’t gunna roll over and clawed it back in the second. Superb tussles all over the court with Evergreens coming out the statistical winners on the night.
Netball came out as the overall winner … great fun was had by all with a great bunch of ‘experienced’ players!!!

Saturday 8 August
It was a cold and blustery day to watch and play netball.
Celtics played Taradale who came down from 3rd grade and we went up a grade, expecting a very competitive game this unfortunately wasn’t the case.
Celtics from the first whistle took charge and made it their game. Taradale was unable to get into the game. Through the court our girls played with confidence and comittment. The centre court players were sublime, causing held balls, stepping and minor mistakes which frustrated the Taradale team.
Celtics never stopped playing until the last whistle. We did have a few players landing on the ground but they got up and did the job.
Loren took the court as GS although she says that she is more of an indoor player.
Thank you for a great spectator game. Score Celtics. 44 Taradale 8 POD – Bridget Hannan
Clovers played Clive. Unfortunately they did not have their full team available and three girls from Sacred Heart filled in,which we were very grateful for. A big responsibility for them not having played with these girls before and more experienced opponents.
Clovers started off slowly and built momentum during the game with Kylie Meckhi and Alazae leading the way in the centre, until Kylie rolled her ankle. Once she came off positions were changed, which was late in the game.
Defence worked very hard Clive was on form shooting close to the post and very hard to defend.
Thank you to all who filled in and supported the Clovers today. Clive 25 Clovers 5 POD. Alazae
We are looking forward to our Pancake Breakfast in September and a Games day on 22 August. More information soon.
We look forward to everyone’s support.

The Leprauchan Comments

An Englishman, a Scotsman, a Welshman and Paddy the Irishman were flying together in an airliner.
The captain announced that due to the failure of one of the engines they were rapidly losing altitude and that one of them would have to jump out to save the others.
“I do this for the glory of Scotland!” said the Scot and he jumped out.
“We need to lose more weight,” cried the captain, so the Welshman shouted as he jumped, “I do this for the glory of Wales!”
“Sorry,” said the captain. “I’m afraid we need to lose more weight.”
“I do this for the glory of Ireland!” said Paddy the Irishman as he threw the Englishman from the plane.

An Englishman and a Scotsman were playing golf when the Englishman’s ball hit Paddy, knocking him out cold. When Paddy came to, he said to the Englishman, “My injury will cost you five thousand pounds in compensation.”
“But I said fore,” said the Englishman.
“I’ll take it,” said Paddy.

Shaun and Paddy are preparing to be blasted into space and have just left the mission briefing when one turns to the other and says, ‘Shaun, where are we goin?’
Paddy replies, ‘Well Shaun, the man in charge said we are on a mission to the sun.’
‘OK,’ says Shaun, he thinks for a while and then asks, ‘Won’t it be a bit hot, it being the sun and all?’
‘Don’t be stupid, Shaun,’ says Paddy, ‘the man said we’d be going at night.’
