SARACENS 2020 AGM

Date: Sunday 20th September 2020
Venue: Pettigrew Lounge, McLean Park, Napier
Time: AGM 11am followed by lunch
Match:
Hawke’s Bay v Counties Manukau
@ 2:05pm

DID YOU KNOW
THAT here is one happy coach, well at the final whistle anyway. Former Premier player and Hastings Boys High teacher Matt Roberston guided the clubs Premier Reserves to Jack Swain Cup Final and of course a win in his first season in the role last Saturday at Tremain Field.
THAT the following is a 2017 Flashback from the NZ Herald – ‘Sharplin Toast of Tour’ The 43rd annual New Zealand Marist Colts Rugby tour which included three Hawkes Bay players Napier Old Boys Marist’s Craig Sharplin, Jack Nelson-Murray and Joshua Burlace Hastings Rugby & Sports completed their unbeaten four match North Island tour with a 51-15 win over Harlequin Colts in Hamilton on Saturday. A game in which NOBM winger Sharplin scored a try and received the John Patete Cup for the teams Player of the Tour at the teams awards function.
The other tour games resulted in wins over Te Awamutu XV 29-15, Tauranga’s Greerton Marist XV 26-10 and Rotorua St Michaels Marist XV 25-19. This tour has as usual been quite a massive physical effort by the team in having to front up to play four games in eight days, and to come out of it with a clean sweep is really commendable. The squad certainly flew the Marist flag high through these northern regions over the past week.

THAT we are still sitting on quite a lot of sundry clothing, jackets, tops belonging to both adults and children that has been left behind in the clubrooms etc. It is quite obvious some folk can’t be bothered to enquire if we have seen it.
If this gear isn’t claimed within the next few weeks it will be donated to St Vincent De Paul Op Shop

THAT the following is a message from Maraenui’s James Panapa posted on Facebook following the Premier Reserve grades Jack Swain Cup Final….. In the Covid-19 level 2 Tremain Field spectator lockout game.
‘I’d just like to say a Big to thank you to Napier Old Boys Marist for opening their clubrooms to our supporters.
For the ones who got to go and watch our boys played were humbled and overwhelmed .
To the Marist boys wow what a game. Finished off like a team that knows finals footy.

We had ya but you never gave up and came back like the champs you are. Well done and congratulations.
Again Thank You Napier Old Boys Marist.’

And our clubs reply – Thanks James Panapa. It was a pleasure to have your older members with us on Saturday. Sharing a beer and watching some great rugby.

THAT even our Junior players found a vantage point on top of the clubs playground equipment to watch the thrilling Premier Reserves thrilling Final from. Who knows in years to come they could be out in the middle chasing the silverware for the Napier Old Boys Marist Club. Your day will come boys….

THAT the Hawkes Bay App has certainly proved a boon of recent times with their coverage of some Premier grade club rugby matches in this somewhat different and abbreviated club rugby season. To be able to see the action from other teams games while still watching your own has given one a new perspective on local club rugby. Also with limited number allowed to attend games due to Covid-19, to be able to played through your TV’s etc for larger number to view has proved an asset to club and others who have bothered to delve into how to manage it.

THAT an important message to our rugby, netball and football players and supporters >>> Make Sure YOU get back to the clubrooms on Saturdays for the regular aftermatch functions for some ‘other’ grade and womens Hawkes Bay rep games 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 representative rugby and catch some action on our BIG screen. >>> Make Sure you call in for a Pint

THAT the Super 8 fixture 1ST XV fixture between Napier Boys High vs New Plymouth Boys High played in New Plymouth under the shadow of Mt Egmont yesterday saw the visitors succumb to hosts NPBHS 25-22

THAT here is another old Irish proverb – If it was raining soup, the Irish would go out with forks.

THAT an update to all ticket holders in the clubs annual major fundraiser lottery – The first five round of draws have now been made at the clubrooms. With the second to last rounds of the weekly cash draws of the 3 x $100 prizes yesterday and final 3 x R$100 next Saturday (12 Sept.) you’re still in with a show.

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 three of the clubs players turned out in the Hawkes Bay Rugby Academy XV’s team that played against King Country at Tremain Field yesterday. They were halfback Zach Donaldson, winger Ryan Lindeque and prop Lee Moleli.

THAT it’s been interesting to see where some members of the North – South team players first cut their teeth in inter-provincial first class rugby came from. Certainly not in the island they had hailed from. A classic example of this is that eight of the South Island starting XV named with their secondary schools were raised in the north: Codie Taylor (Horowhenua College), Nepo Laulala (Wesley), Sam Whitelock (Feilding High), Brad Weber (Napier Boys High), George Bridge (Lindisfarne), Jack Goodhue (Mt Albert Grammar), Brayden Ensor (St Kentigerns), Jordie Barrett (Francis Douglas).

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.
THE . . . 81st edition of the North-South game has been done and dusted. The North being the Possibles and the South the Probables. Oh that’s right it wasn’t an All Black trial was it? I had one thought after watching the sides train in their respective provincial jerseys during the week. How great it would’ve been to see the players take the field in their respective provincial socks, aka like provincial club day where the players wear their club socks. apparently back in 2012 in the inter-island game they did wear provincial socks. (2020)
OF THE . . . 24 players who have represented the Central Vikings to date only three were born in Manawatu. Prop Simon Halford, and halfbacks Scott Waldergrave and Anthony Stephenson. When the Vikings met North Harbour at Napier the visitors also fielded a Manawatu halfback in Mark Robinson whose father Lindsay represented Manawatu-Horowhenua combined against the 1977 Lions. (1997)
COMBINED . . . provincial teams gaining promotion in the NPC is nothing new. Recent history would show to those with short memories that a combined team called Wairarapa Bush won the Second Division in the mid 1980s under the guidance of on BJ Lochore and more recently in the 1990s Nelson Bays, yet another combined team won promotion from the Third Division. (1997)
IN THE . . . after the full nine rounds, semi finals and final of this years Tui Maddison Trophy there’s been a total of 415 tries scored including five penalty tries. And there’s been 68 penalties kicked along with 272 conversions and just the one dropped goal too. The top teams try scoring wise being The Green Machine (67), HRS (66), Taradale 49 and MAC 48. The top individual points scorer new Magpie signing HRS halfback Connor McLeod with 117, our own Bain Champion second with 102 comprising of 2 tries, 40 conversions and four penalty goals. The Green Machine’s Micheal “The Eel” Buckley finished third on the try scoring list with eight touch downs in 2020.
MEANWHILE ACROSS . . . the ditch, my eldest grandson Bentley Neilson after three touchdowns this weekend, is now up to 45 tries from eleven games for his Nedlands junior side in Perth so far this season. Still working on his tackling, a bit sluggish in that area yesterday. (2020)
WHAT . . . has to be inspiring, is the ability of a 99 year old male runner who completed the marathon at the recent World Masters Games in Durban in 3 hours and 45 minutes. A time which many younger runners would be proud to achieve. A few years back (1987) I knocked out a 2 hour 34 minute marathon for 2nd place in the Hawke’s Bay Marathon Championship. (1997)
BACK . . . then I used compete against an up and coming athlete by the name of Robbie Johnston. Johnston, nows 53 had the distinction last weekend of being the first runner in New Zealand history to be disqualified for spitting. The 8km cross country race organisers in Dunedin had laid down strict Covid-19 rules for the championship which included a warning system for athletes who were seen to be having a hoick during races. Two yellow warning cards and a red for disqualification. Johnston, a former Olympian and Commonwealth Games rep, who was first across the line 30mins 07secs had seen no cards issued to him out on the course during the race so was absolutely stunned to hear he’d been DQed from the event. (2020)
THE . . . selection of the new Green Machine premier coach is quite Ellery-mentory my dear Watson, I mean Wilson. (2020)

Cheers McGoo

THEY SAID IT
“Home is where the heart is. I’m a born and bred Tokanui lad, I was a hostel boy at Southland Boys, I played for Woodlands and played for the Southland Stags. I’m about as Southland as it gets.”
123 game Southland veteran Jamie MacIntosh who has been playing offshore of recent years is to turnout for Otago in this years Mitre10 Cup.

“Yeah 100 percent. I wish it was a three-game series.”
The despite losing Norths Ardie Savea comments on the South’s last gasp 38-35 victory at Sky Stadium last night.

After the Action
…………………
Saturday 3 September

Yours truly off to Netball whizzing off to Hastings stopped rung Anna to make sure it was in Hastings but unfortunately had to turn back and head to Onekawa, Covid-19 has a lot to answer for. Both teams played at 2.00 pm.
Clovers played Haumoana the first 1/4 there were 8 all the 2nd 1/4 Haumoana had their full team and started to inch ahead with some very competitive play, which was unnerving for the Clovers. From the 3rd 1/4 on Haumoana stamped their authority on the game advantage being played in the circle to the detriment of our team. Again some very good positioning by Mekhi Jesse and GA with great support from the defence.
Bex played both ends of the court and owned each position she played she deserved the POD
Denise At WD was great tipping and intercepting passes. All the team played very well and great to have support there for them
Final score. Haumoana. 31 -19 POD – Bex
Celtics played Pirates and from all account it was very one sided which makes for a very pedestrian game Sarah played as normal competitive and every ball which cane down the defence end was hers.
The most amazing facet of the game Loren came out of the circle to receive a pass from Bridget and required a GPS to navigate her back into the circle should have been worth videoing. The game had a few light that being one of them and the other the combination of Laura and Loren although they are very lucky with outperform attack players feed the ball very well.
Final score 40-11 – POD – Sarah

The Leprauchan Comments
Paddy Irishman and Angus the Scot met 25 years after their last get-together. They hugged and slapped each other’s back and tears formed in their eyes as they renewed their old friendship.
Paddy said, “Let’s have a drink like we did in the old days.”
“Aye,” replied Angus the Scotsman, “and don’t forget that this round is your shout.”

Three Englishmen were in a bar and spotted an Irishman. So, one of the Englishmen walked over to the Irishman, tapped him on the shoulder, and said, “Hey, I hear your St. Patrick was a drunken loser.”
“Oh really, hmm, didn’t know that.”
Puzzled, the Englishman walked back to his buddies. “I told him St. Patrick was a loser, and he didn’t care.” The second Englishman remarked, “You just don’t know how to set him off…watch and learn.” So, the second Englishman walked over to the Irishman, tapped him on the shoulder and said, “Hey, I hear your St. Patrick was lying, cheating, idiotic, low-life scum!”
“Oh really, hmm, didn’t know that.”
Shocked beyond belief, the Englishman went back to his buddies. “You’re right. He’s unshakable!”
The third Englishman remarked, “Boys, I’ll really tick him off… just watch.” So the third Englishman walked over to the Irishman, tapped him on the shoulder and said, “I hear St. Patrick was an Englishman!”
“Yeah, that’s what your buddies were trying to tell me.”

A Irishman and a German are the only survivors of a plane crash on an island. They are walking around looking for food when the German finds a bottle. He rubs it and a genie appears.
The genie says, “I will grant each of you one wish. But, I must warn you, whatever you wish for, the other man gets twice as much of.”
The German goes first. He says “I’ll have a glass of Dortmunder Pilsner Beer. That way that Irish bastard will get two glasses of it, and see what a real beer tastes like.
So the genie nods, and suddenly the German is holding a glass of fine German beer, and Irishman is holding two glasses of the same beer. The German says “Now taste a real beer, not that Guinness sewage!”
The genie then turns to the Irishman and says “Now it’s your turn, but remember the German will get twice what you wish for.”
The Irishman says “Genie, see that stick over there? Beat me half to death with it.”

We look forward to seeing all rugby players, footballers, netballers, cricketers and softballers and friends at the clubrooms each Saturday – Pop in for cool Tui or two – Also bring along your mates for an Ale and a chat. All members and Friends Welcome …………. Ed
