THAT with Taranaki’s first defence of their prize won from Canterbury last week at Inglewood this afternoon, the ‘log’ has moved on once again back down south as extra baggage with the Otago team who were just too much of a handfull for the Naki boys. With this rapid change of fortunes, Ash Dixon’s Magpies will really have an opportunity to go for gold as their next match so happens to be against new shield holders Otago down at Forsyth Barr Stadium next Sunday with a 4.35pm kickoff time. Guess who’ll be tuning into that thrilling encounter. Go the Magpies………….

THAT it’s been a long time between drinks for Hawkes Bay Magpie supporters – Yes no less than 32 years since Hawkes Bay last managed to conquer the might that is Canterbury. In the 1982 NPC match played at Hastings Nelson Park the Magpies under the new captaincy of All Black lock Graeme Higginson, the Max Jones coached selection recorded a 21-13 win over the southeners with tries to 2nd five Robbie Hunter, flanker Junior Paraha and halfback Paul Blake. Plus winger Laurie Holmes 2 penalties and 1st five Brian Morris drop goal. To Canterburys fullback Robbie Deans try, conversion and penalty goal and No.8 Dale Atkins try. Yet despite this yawning chasm without a win the Magpies have run it close at times but it has never been enough until that 82nd minute grounding of the ball last night by Hawkes Bays inspirational skipper Ash Dixon to just nudge his team in front. Guess that’s another bogey out of the way until next time we meet.

THAT there was an interesting flashback on Sky Sport 1 last Thursday evening to a rugby match back in 1998 which featured a re-run of the claytons Final played at McLean Park between the Central Vikings coached by Frank Oliver and the Gordon Teitjens coached Bay of Plenty.

For those of you who are not familiar with these controversial times, the Central Vikings was a New Zealand rugby union team that played in the second division of the NPC for two seasons in 1997 and 1998. This team was formed from the merger of the Hawke’s Bay and Manawatu unions, featured current and future All Blacks and a former All Black in coach Frank Oliver. The result of the above mentioned televised Final saw the Vikings take out the 1998 2nd division title with their 33-18 win over the Bay of Plenty Steamers.

Stepping back to the inaugural year on making the Final in 1997 the Vikings were scheduled to play Northland for the title but on the Tuesday prior to the game in Whangarei, the NZRU announced that even if the Vikings won they wouldn’t be promoted to the 1st division. This really knocked the stuffing out of the side as the whole purpose of the exercise was the carrot of promotion and resulted in the team going down convincingly to the tune of 63-10 !

They battled on again in 1998 and once again were finalists this time playing the Bay of Plenty on McLean Park where a 33-18 win was recorded over the Bay of Plenty. However with promotion on the doorstep for the Vikings, within a month of achieving their dream the NZ Union once again came down heavily declaring that with debts incurred in reaching their goal, the new union couldn’t afford to proceed in 1999 which resulted in the abandonment of the ‘marriage’.

Interestingly after allowing this wasted effort to proceed for two years the NZRU in their wisdom once again allowed two other unions to join that being Nelson Bays and Marlborough to become the Tasman Rugby Union. And while on reflection we can all agree reverting back to ‘ourselves’ ie Hawkes Bay and Manawatu must sit comfortably with our two provinces, although what had gone before were certainly interesting times.

Hawkes Bay players in the Vikings squad over the two years of the teams existence were: Mark Atkinson, Charles Beetham, Brad Clarke, Orcades Crawford, Jarrod Cunningham, Tom Deighton, Steve Fee, Greg Halford, Simon Halford, Jeff Karika, Lister Kire, Potu Leavasa, Danny Lee, Horace Lewis, Tony Maidens, Mutu Ngarimu, Murdoch Paewai, Roger Randle, Reece Robinson, Dustin Watts.

THAT looking back on a very much abbreviated club season in retrospect. Premiers: Played 10 won 7 lost 3. Premier Reserves: Played 12 won 10 lost 2. Thirds: Played 8 won 0 lost 8. Colts: Played 9 won 5 lost 4. Roll on 2021 and lets all hope that club rugby and life in general gets back to some sort of normality.

THAT a reminder to NOBM players and supporters >>> Make Sure YOU get along to the clubrooms on Saturdays for the regular aftermatch functions for some ‘other’ grade and womens Hawkes Bay rep games etc. being played at Tremain Field. It is a great opportunity to catch up with your fellow club members now that our much shortened club season has finished. And it’s a chance to 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.

THAT and another old Irish proverb – Some people make things happen, some watch things happen, while others wonder whats happened.

THAT we it is interesting to see that new All Black Hoskins Sotutu is being compared by some of the countries rugby notables as a rising former All Black star ZinZan Brooke. To quote former All Black Mike Brewer ‘The talent that he has, I thinks, is outrageous. I think the key point of difference is his anticipatory skills. He has got the anticipation of an open side flanker, which reminds me a lot of Zinny because he is in the right place at the right time.’ Just as an aside Hoskins and ZinZan are and were members of the Auckland Marist club.

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.

AFTER . . . 21 seasons of scoring the rugby games at McLean seems to have come to an end for the time being. Me and my cohort for the last three seasons, Dave Bell were dumped from doing it for the Magpies vs Steelers match. What sucks is the way it was handled. No prior warning from anybody and we were informed by our tech guy John that we wouldn’t be required. Keith Groube from HB referees would be doing both games. Even our long time match day manager at McLean Park Gary Macdonald from the HBRU wasn’t aware of it until we informed him of what was happening. Not professional at all. Reminds me of an old Roy Orbison song “Communication Breakdown”. (2020)

WELL . . . fast forward a week versus Canterbury it was still the same scenario. But It now seems that Dave Bell and I will in all likelihood be back in the scoring seats at McLean Park come 26th October with a double header gig involving the Taniwha. So watch this space. (2020)

THE . . . Trade Me auction for the one-off Hawke’s Bay Magpies jerseys for the match (Farmers Day) against Canterbury took place throughout Saturday morning and into the arvo and evening of the match. Funds from the auction were to raise money for drought stricken Hawke’s Bay farmers. The top price prior to the match was for Devon Flanders # 8 jersey at $1,309.00, Kurt Baker’s #15 fetched $570.00. As a few in the club will know yours truly has a penchant for rugby jersey auctions having paid $500.00 and $400.00 on ones at the Napier Marist (2008) and Napier High School Old Boys 2010) respective centenaries. So it was a steal for me today scoring Joel Hintz’s #18 for a mere $255.00! Was wondering do I get a discount because he never took to the field? (2020)

SO. . . from my figures of the first eleven jerseys sold prior to kick-off yesterday the average price was around $412.00 per jersey. (2020)

THE FORMER . . . world record hold for planking George Hood has been at it again. Recently, at the tender age of 68 George broke the world plank record again. This time extending it out to an amazing 8 hours! When he first set the world record in 2011 it was only for an hour. (2020)

MEANWHILE ACROSS . . . the ditch, my eldest grandson Bentley Neilson after just a measly one touchdown this weekend, is now up to 51 tries from 13 games for his Nedlands junior side in Perth so far this season. Still three rounds left for the young fellas. (2020)

Cheers McGoo

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

“Is the player depth around to put a team on the field that can be competitive? We believe there is.”

NZ Player Association boss Rob Nichol explains his support for a Pasifika team in Super Rugby.

“We’ve got an opportunity to make that right. And we cannot let it slip.”
Rob Nichol continues.

“Ash is a world class lineout thrower and we’re lucky we have so many lineout jumpers.
Magpie lock Tom Parsons on team captain Ash Dixon.

“We attacked them at set piece time. At the 60 minute mark the match could have gone either way but the boys dug deep.”
Parsons continues.

“It’s an absolute honour to be Wallabies captain and I want to thank Dave Rennie, the Wallabies management team as well as Rugby Australia for their support and endorsement.”

Wallaby captain flanker Michael Hooper.

Saturday 26 September – Report courtesy Glenys Hannan

Celtics played Clive what a great game the team unfortunately had two players suffer injuries Emma and Anahera. The game was very slick and fast which we adapted to but our defence was solid and played with patience Sharese’s elevation was amazing as was Emma and Sarah when on the court covered the base, rebounds were tightly contested, with most of them going our way.

The attacks showed confidence in the circle and the attacks were able feed the ball into the shooters as both of them were able to create a lot of space for this to happen

Celtics 36 Clive 14 POD. Sarah. Celtics finished 2nd in their grade – Well Done.

The Leprauchan Comments

An Englishman, A Scotsman and an Irishman are working on building a Skyscraper. They spend their working day atop the steel structure and have their lunch sitting on one of the steel girders.

One day the Englishman opens his lunch box and scoffs “Damn. Corned Beef? Again?”. The Scotsman opens his lunchbox and bemoans his Corned Beef sandwich as well. The Irishman opens his lunchbox and he also has a Corned Beef sandwich.

The three of them agree that Corned Beef sandwiches are hideous and the Englishman sarcastically says that if he get’s a Corned Beef tomorrow he has good mind to jump from the building because he’s absolutely sick of eating them. The Scotsman shares his sentiment and agree’s saying “You and me both Pal!”. The Irish man concurs and says he’ll jump himself it’s yet another Corned Beef sandwich.

The following day, the three meet up to have their lunch. The Englishman opens his lunchbox and he has a chicken sandwich. “Excellent” he says. The Scotsman has a cheese and ham sandwich. “Lovely” he exclaims. The Irishman opens his lunchbox but, lo and behold, it’s Corned Beef. Again. He excuses himself, stands up, leaps from the girder and falls to his death below.

An inquiry is opened by the construction company and it reveals the talk the three friends had the day before about the frequency of getting hideous corned beef sandwiches for lunch and their sarcastically joking about killing themselves if they got it again the next day. The company summons the Irishman’s grieving wife to shed some light on the situation. They explain the circumstances which lead to his death but she tells them “I don’t understand, he always makes his own lunch!”.

Clean Irish Jokes

Hyped up on pints and patriotism after celebrating St. Patrick’s Day, I took a bus home. Amazing what a touch of the green magic can do – I’d never driven a bus in my life!

Declan, Mick and Seamus entered their local pub’s weekly raffle and to their surprise, they each won a prize:

Declan a bottle of whisky, Mick a large turkey and Seamus a toilet brush.

The next week, they met again in the pub and talked about their prizes.

Declan extolled the pleasures of his smooth Irish whisky, while Mick reported that the turkey was the most delicious he had ever tasted

Seamus looked rather glum when asked about the toilet brush.

‘It wasn’t that great,’ he said. ‘I think I’ll go back to using paper.’


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
