DID YOU KNOW

St John’s College Rugby

Over the past few weeks we again have travelled on a number of occasions including twice to Taupo and twice to Palmerston North. The good news is that we have had results go our way as follows:

Hurricanes Life Members Cup:

Win against Horowhenua combined in quarter-final – 48-12

Win against Wainuiomata High School in Semi-Final – 67-3

Final vs Lindisfarne at Tremain Field, Napier, Saturday 19th September – 10-12

CNI Competition

Win Against New Plymouths, Francis Douglas College in Taupo (First time in 19 years) – 36-12

Win against Mastertons, Rathkeale College in Taupo last Saturday – 20-14

So for 2020 that concludes our CNI campaign but not with out one last bang. Our Tongan number 8 Soni Paletua also secured the MVP of the entire CNI competition which is very special both for Soni as well as St John’s College.

In a year that has been testing to say the least we can also celebrate the college being represented in the Hurricanes U18s with our captain Brad Campbell (who incidently is son of former Napier Marist player and HB Rugby CEO Jay Campbell) making the squad.

Thank you all for your support of the team over the past season. And it is good news already as we only lose six Year 13’s players this year so the prospects for the St John’s team for 2021 is already looking exciting.

Report from Matt Wyatt
St John’s College Director of Rugby / Head Coach

THAT if the truth was known some of these media types that have been on about the All Blacks making themselves unavailable for the Bledisloe Cup and Rugby Championship have been either short of a story or trying to get a reaction. Considering our players have had little rugby this winter by comparision to other years with the Covid-19 lockdowns etc they would be champing at the bit to get into action. After all they are professional well paid players and their livelihood depends on their input out on the paddock. A month or so away from home is but a pittance and especially doing something they enjoy.

One only has to caste your mind back to tours of yesteryear to the northern hemispheres home unions and France and sometimes Canada thrown to start or finish a near three month tour. That’s what you could call being away from home for a while. Going back further and in the time of war our kiwi troops were away from home for years. In World War 2 for example my own father spent no less than four and a half years with the NZ Forces in the Middle East and Europe. Now that’s really what you could call being away for a lengthy period from family and love ones.

So what’s a mere month or two away to complain about these days. Anyone who shirks from that should maybe find another sport to play as there must be plenty of other players who would relish the opportunity to be on tour with the team.

irish-jokes THAT Irishman and life member Joe Kelly caught here sporting his version of just what a facemask should look like although TeamTalk ‘Here & There’ columnist and fanatical NOBM supporter Paul McGoo McGettigan doesn’t appear to all that interested in Joe’s colour statement at Friday evenings Awards Dinner. You can rest assured that Joe didn’t keep it on for long as it would have hampered his imbibing….

THAT you can bet that it would have been a ripper of an evening in the Naki last night after the local team played a real gutsy game to wrest the coveted Ranfurly Shield off the almost invincible Canterbury outfit. Taranaki stunned the southeners by running out to a 20-3 halftime lead in the first forty and while the red and blacks clawed their way back to hit the front 22-20 late in the game it was never going to be enough. The impact of the Barrett boys Beauden and Jordie certainly made their mark. And in the 73rd minute fullback Jordie Barrett kicked Taranaki to heaven with a massive penalty to put the challengers into a one point lead and that’s how it remained as the yellow-n-blacks locked the game down up front.

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 Mitre10 Cup action on our BIG screen. >>> Make Sure you call in for a Pint – Wade would love to see you.

Napier Boys’ High School THAT after losing to Hamilton Boys High by 7-43 last week in the Secondary School Super 8 competition Napier Boys High who finished in fourth position once again played off again in Hamilton yesterday against Hamilton Boys High who finished the round robin in first position. And while Napier they didn’t quite achieve the elusive win they wanted they improved markedly going down this time18-29. In the other playoff between 2nd and 3rd New Plymouth Boys High went down 22-19 to Rotorua Boys High. So next weeks 2020 Super 8 Final will be between Hamilton BHS vs Rotorua BHS.

THAT here is another old Irish proverb – May you live as long as you want, and never want as long as you live.

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 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.

SO SAD . . . to hear of the passing of Counties Manukau stalwart Phil Kingsley-Jones this week. Kingsley-Jones prior to becoming Jonah Lomu’s agent/manager was a stand up comedian. I can recall attending a function in the Texans clubrooms in the early 90s. Phil Kingsley-Jones was the star turn, he was absolutely hilarious. And gave it to anybody from the audience he spotted gapping it for a leak or to top up their drinks. (2020)

THE . . . current World Record of 3.43:13 for the mens mile set by Hicham El Guerrouj has now stood since 7th 0f July 1999 making one of the longest standing records in world athletics. However in the USA recently, another form of the world mile record was broken. Whitnee Orton a 5th year senior at Bringham Young University smashed the existing world mile record for bouncing a basketball with a time 4.58:45. So that means she bounced the ball an average of 78-80 times each of the four laps. (2020)

AND YES McGOO . . . did run a few times over the mile distance too in my athletics heyday. Best of 4.26:19 set on the grass at Taradale in the mid to late 80s. I can also recall doing mile reps along Church Road back then too somewhere between Neeve and Wharerangi Rds. Used knock those out in about an average of 4.45s with four or five reps in workout. (2020)

FORMER NAPIER MARIST . . . premier halfback and HB’s most successful beach sprint coach Greg Larsen has called it quits to focus more on his own fitness and competition. Larsen 70, has also been involved in the recent past with the conditioning work of the Napier Old Boys Marist premier rugby side. (2020)

ONE INTERESTING . . .thing I’ve noticed from the early rounds of the Farah Palmer Cup is that the crowd numbers (under covid restrictions) look very similar to the numbers that were attending the womens’ games last year! (2020)

IT DID . . . slip my mind. In last week’s bit about Mo Farrah’s world record one hour track run I forgot to mention that a Kiwi by name of Bill Baillie broke the same record in Auckland back in 1963. He ran 20,190m to break the then world record held by the great Czechoslovak long distance athlete Emil Zatopek. Interestingly enough, that run by Baillie is still a New Zealand record. Legend has it that after setting the record Baillie quipped that he had better get home and mow (not Sir Mo) his lawns. (2020)

MEANWHILE ACROSS . . . the ditch, my eldest grandson Bentley Neilson after three touchdowns this weekend, is now up to 50 tries from twelve games for his Nedlands junior side in Perth so far this season. Still four rounds left for the young fellas. (2020)

AND . . . yes, it’s true a certain member of the Napier Harriers (yours truly) has grown wings just so he can ponce around in tights at footy matches at McLean Park – that’s when he doesn’t forget to take them. (1999)

Cheers McGoo

THEY SAID IT

“At the moment we’ve got really positive indications that things will be tracking well by early to mid-October, but we’ll continue working closely with quarantine and health ministries and everyone associated with any decision making.”
NZ Rugby CEO Mark Robinson.

“There’s a lot of ticker with some of these boys in our team, from one to eight our pack fronted up today.”
Jordie Barret comments his forwards who ground out the hard yards to wind the clock down.yesterday as they clung on to their one point lead in the closing moments.

“It was a pretty special moment today. But hopefully we can get the opportunity to play for the Naki again this season.
Unsure whether All Black duties may have an effect on being able to help defend the Log of Wood Jordie Barrett ponders.

Shamrocks had another win !!! …… We have hit our stride ….. watch out for us next season.

Thank you Tony for umpiring us again, Jill for her positive sideline support and thank you to Havelock Super 40’s for a great game. Final score. 27-32 … And we are super star players of the day !!!

As for the Evergreens they also finished with a bang, besting All-In. 37-31 in a very tight encounter. Go the Over 40’s !!!

Saturday 19 September

Clovers played Pirates what an amazing game of netball they had 10 players who all took the court which was great to see. Kiara bought her A game fabulous mid court play, backed up by Mekhi and Jesse. Tarra and Kiara not only shot well but also some great rebounds.

Defence throughout the game was a team effort again Jazz and Denise giving their opponents no where to move.

This team has not won a game this year but are still a team of enthusiastic happy players.

Pirates won 36-18 POD. Kiara. The whole team deserve a massive compliment for the way they played.

ExHigh Marist Celtics played Hastings Celtics

This Hastings side was made up of young school girls playing Club. It is great to see great elevation and a game pattern, which took our team 2 1|4’s before they adjusted to their game. Defence at both ends need to get their distance, as it causes to many penalties. Umpires yes will always have distance ruling as in the rules and this can be frustrating for you as players.

The 3rd 1/4 we started to play our game with Naera controlling the centre court into the Goal circle, letting Laura get in position to shoot.

Some very good feeding into the circle in the final 1/4 had Celtics on our backs which caused many penalties. We are a very capable team but we’re not able to pull a win off 1 st loss for the season

Score Hastings Celtics 41 -26 Celtics POD Naera

The Leprauchan Comments

After living in the remote countryside of Ireland all his life, an old Irishman decided it was time to visit Dublin for the first time.
In one of the stores he picks up a mirror and looks in it.
Not ever having seen one before, he remarked at the image staring back at him. ‘How ’bout that!’ he exclaims, ‘Here’s a picture of me Fadder.’
He bought the mirror thinking it was a picture of his dad, but on the way home he remembered his wife didn’t like his father, so he hung it in the shed, and every morning before leaving to go fishin’, he would go there and look at it.
His wife began to get suspicious of these many trips to the shed.
So, one day after her husband left, she went to the shed and found the mirror..
As she looked into the glass, she fumed, ‘So that’s the ugly fookin’ bitch he’s runnin’ around with.

Clean Irish Jokes

Paddy took 2 stuffed dogs to the Antiques Roadshow.
The presenter said, “This is a very rare set, produced by the celebrated Johns Brothers taxidermists who operated in London at the turn of the last century. Do you have any idea what they would fetch if they were in good condition?”
“Sticks!” Paddy replied.

Two Irishman went down for a disability pension, they were pretending to be deaf, in order to get disability money from the government.
The next day they have to go to the hearing centre for their test, The first Irishman walks into the office, the man sat at his desk said “Hello, come in, shut the door behind you”
He shut the door and went to take a seat. The man said “Get out, you ain’t deaf, I just asked you to shut the door behind you and you shut it, you can hear perfectly fine, out get out!”
On his way out he says to the second one in the waiting room “Now whatever you do, don’t shut that door, he’s trying to trick you”
So the second one walked in, the man said “Shut the door behind you”
He said “Shut it yourself!”

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
