“Team up with a winning Club in 2021”


Why would you play for Old Boys Marist ?

We have a simple philosophy at Napier Old Boys Marist – that we are a well organised rugby club both on and off the field, we are fit, disciplined, well coached and our players are very loyal.  Our teams are always well presented.


At Napier Old Boys Marist we promote a strong work ethic, we play with a special passion and honesty which is fun to be part of, but we also expect our players to carry that honesty through to their work and personal lives.

In summary we as a club will create a positive environment so that players can expect to progress in their rugby careers.  To excel players must also take responsibility for their rugby and life in general.

Good is not good when better is expected

Skipper Opens the Innings
WiT Trust NOBM Premiers captain Ricky Hayes opens the scoring with this
grounding between the post on the 2nd minutes of yesterdays Maddison
Trophy round opener.

Maddison Trophy   –  Round 1  +  Hawkes Bay Challenge Trophy  &  Henare Harris Shield


Saturday’s game was the first of the Maddison Trophy round and the 40th defence of the Challenge Shield. The opposition were the big improvers of 2021 in Tamatea, who came to play and pushed the boys right to the end and nearly pinched a draw right on full time after a tense final forty.

Playing with the strong wind at our backs in the first forty, it was Tamatea who opened the scoring after capitalising on a dropped pass inside our own 22 to cross for games opening try. 7-0 down within 2 minutes quickly became 7 all after the boys built pressure inside Tamatea’s half with captain Ricky Hayes crossing next to the posts.  Three more converted tries followed which included a brace to hooker Dom Devine and one to second five and goalkicker Bain Champion as we started to dominant possession and field position.  Loose play saw Tamatea grab one try back but the bonus point try came in the 37 minute after some sustained attack on Tamatea’s try line.

Turning 28-14 up at the break everyone felt comfortable despite having to play into the wind however it was Tamatea who took hold of the ball and controlled the second half proceedings.  It took 20 minutes to register the first points in the second spell with a Tamatea converted try closing the margin to 7 with 20 to play.  The last 20 minutes was a roll coaster as Tamatea attacked with everything they had however our defence held firm and won critical turnovers.  With 5 minutes to go we had the chance to put the game to bed but for some poor option taking saw points go begging and Tamatea build nicely down field as they went in search of a draw.  Getting within 5 metres of the our line saw some desperate defence once again save the day as the ball spilled forward and post the scrum the referee blew full time.

Thanks for all the supporters for coming out to watch and we look forward to seeing you all again next week.  A lot to work on as we move to week two and a date with Taradale at home.

Town & Country grade   –   Jack Santo Cup


The Richard Kepka Builders Premier Reserves had the pleasure of hosting a big physical Otane team this week.  We knew all week this was going to be a tough game, Otane has been strong in the Town and Country competition for years and we were missing a number of players due to injury.

Playing with the wind in the first half we knew we needed to start well and take control early.  Otane also had this in mind and it took 16 minutes before Ryan Lindeque opened the scoring running a gorgeous line through the Otane backs, converted by Brendon Carroll and we were up 7-0.    Otane came straight back using their big forwards, and ‘Second chance Charlies’ Ben Carpenter crossed at close range and the scores were level at 7.

Being frequently penalised Otane made their way back down the field and scored again shortly after.  Ryan used his pace once more and crossed again before we went into the break locked at 12.

We knew this game would go down to the wire and playing into the wind we needed to trust our defence and play sensible rugby.  The first 15 minutes of the second half saw more points go on the board, two penalties and a second converted try to Ben Carpenter for Otane was countered by a peach of a chip kick from Adam Chapman only for the ball to bounce back over one Lindeque brother and into the hands of the other, Andries took this one around under the posts. 19-25 with 25 minutes to go and we had a game on our hands.

Otane played with most of the ball from here on in and our goal line defence was stout. They played a lot in our 22 but the guys held strong and kept them out, forcing them back until one of their errors fell into Ryans hands and he was off, scampering away to score under the posts, Adam converted and we were up 26-25 with 8 minutes to play.

More strong goal line defence, and a nifty attack starting from behind our own posts saw us come out on top 26-25, a hard game for sure, we defended well and took our opportunities which was pleasing to see.  Captain Willie Meads 1 from 1. A tough trip over to Whitmore Park next weekend for us to take on the Texans.

Tries – Ryan Lindeque 3,  Andries Lindeque.     Cons. Brendon Carroll 1/2, Adam Chapman 2/2

DIVISION THREE    Round 3  –  Big Barrel Maury Cody Cup 

It was a lovely day in Dinwiddie Ave and we were lucky enough to have one of the top HB refs presiding over us for our Final.   Nicknamed Caddy, because he always picks the right clubs, to referee, we were lucky he chose NOBM & Maraenui today.

Our top senior players had all sustained serious injuries during the gruelling pre-season schedule and opening round battle, so it was good to see the recruitment policy paying dividends with a few of the younger and virgin NOBM players stepping up to keep the 3rds legacy going.

Again it was a top effort by the boys.  Commitment never lacking.  Unfortunately a couple of their big boys just got through the stellar defence on a couple of occasions, but our continual onslaught paid dividends with 4 great NOBM tries to give us a much deserved bonus point.

Thanks Maraenui for the hospitality and feed.  And with that, our 2 game, 1st round has finished.   The Boys are looking forward to the 2nd round, where we may even have a home game.  Rumour has it HBRU have even organised a Friday night game, so the rest of the club can come and watch just how real rugby is played……

Go the Mighty 3rds……..

Your Rugby Enquiries Welcome

The Clubs Board and Players wish to extend a hearty THANK YOU to Aaron Wallace and his Team for the excellent work they did last week on the installation of our new training lights on Bond Fields Nos.1 & 2 and they got the job done so fast so as not to inconvenience our training nights.

From the coaches and players they are absolutely amazing compared to the old lighting system.  Some night rugby could certainly be afoot shortly.

Thanks once again Guys

THAT the SUPER RUGBY TRANS-TASMAN 2021 may not be quite the one-sided affair that many were picking, if a couple of results over the weekend in the opening round are anything to go by.  The like of  (host team first)  – Crusaders 31 Brumbies 29  and  Western Force 19 Chiefs 20.  The next few weeks should be quite interesting as they endeavour to work each other out.  Watch the space…..

THAT with join the  happy diners at the clubs Thursday evening Roasts following training or just having a night off cooking dinner.  All you and or your family have to do is to plan ahead and put your order in for the number of dinners you require on a Wednesday evening to  Tane / Chesna  0204 159 9633.  Our Junior rugby players are also welcome as half size meals are also available.  You can also take advantage of our normal bar facilities before and during your meal.  We look forward to seeing you soon.

THAT  Hawkes Bays major sports venue McLean Park has hosted 11 Hurricanes over the past 25 years since the kickoff of Super Rugby in 1996.  The record for the biggest crowd was set in 2015 when the Hurricanes faced the Highlanders, with some 13,000 fans attending.  This year with the commencement of the inaugural trans-Tasman Super Rugby competition for the first time the Hurricanes versus Western Force match on Friday 28 May at McLean Park we are aiming for 13,500 +

THAT  Hawkes Bay Rugby CEO and former Marist/NOB Marist player Jay Campbell is certainly leading by example.  Jay has stepped up and offered his services as a volunteer referee due to the shortage of qualified whistlers in the region at present.  It is certainly a case of if Jay can give it a go then there must be a number of other former players who would be more than capable following the assistance and coaching from the HBRRA members.   Why not give it a go guys.  We certainly need you.

                WHAT . . . a back up to last week’s outstanding roast beef this week.  his week pork roast took centre stage on Thursday night and it was a winner all the way from the plate to the mouth.

FORMER . . . England cricketer Michael Vaughan was tipping the Black Caps to beat India in the inaugural Test Championship final beginning 1st August at the Rose Bowl in Southampton.  When appearing on Spark Sports The Show Downstairs last week Vaughan waxed lyrical about Kiwi skipper Kane Williamson and said “If Kane was Indian, he’d be the greatest cricketer in the world, but he’s not because you’re not allowed to say that Kohli is not the greatest, because you’d get an absolute pelting on social media.”

DID YOU KNOW . . . the Crusaders have the perfect home finals record after their victory over the Chiefs last weekend.  They’ve won all 25 finals fixtures played in Christchurch since the inception of Super Rugby in 1996.

IN A SIMILAR VEIN . . . is Napier Old Boys Marist’s impressive home record at Tremain Field.  Not only have they defended the Challenge Shield 39 times since winning it off P.Rats in April 2016 but also only lost once in the 2019 Maddison final to Clive.  Counting play-off games in that time means that’s one loss in 44 games!

MEANWHILE . . . across the ditch in Perth.  New season, new club, same result.  My eldest grandson Bentley Neilson celebrated his first game for Palmyra with four tries last Saturday.  Carrying on where he left off last season scoring 56 tries in 14 games for Nedlands in 2020.  Despite his heroics his side only managed a draw with Rockingham.  On Sunday morning he was part of the Booragoon Lions AFL winning side kicking one goal (6 points).

STORKLINE RETURNS . . . to the TeamTalk this week. In the past week we’ve had additions to our Napier Old Boys Marist whanau.  Chris and Alice Johnstone have produced a wee boy (Mac Christopher) on 8th May.  And a few days later in Welly former Green Machine utility back Siosaia Paese and his partner Aliyah became parents for the first time (9th) to Eli Siosaia .  It was also his birthday too (11th) this week along with Michael “The Eel” Buckley who turned 26 on the 9th of May.

AND NOW . . . something for a laugh.  After 10 years a wife started to think their child kinda looks strange so did a DNA test and found out the child is not theirs,  she told her husband what she found out,  the husband replied,  you don’t remember do you?   When we were leaving the hospital the baby pooped and you told me go and change him so I went inside got a clean one and left the dirty one there.  The wife fainted….

Cheers McGoo

      THAT An IMPORTANT Reminder to all players & supporters of the new Rugby Union protocals – re positive sideline comments only under the new referee abuse policy.   Guess it’s a case of ‘If YOU think you can do better then how about signing up to be a referee…..’

    THAT a reminder to all NOBM players – Pass the word around amongst your team mates and also any likely New Players your know of  –  be they family, friends or workmates.  We have vacancies in all grades from Colts through to Premiers.  “Team up with the  ‘GREEN MACHINE’ in 2021  –  New Players always WELCOME

THAT the following is another of those little Covid-19 lockdown gems……  If these last few weeks have taught us anything  –  it’s that stupidity travels faster than any virus on the planet.

++++  Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you’ll start having positive results.


“For Sky Super Rugby Trans-Tasman we have agreed with Rugby Australia to stick to laws that were consistent across our respective domestic Super Rugby competitions, which in this case are the goal-line drop-out and the red card replacement.”

The Leprauchan Comments

“Good morning,” said the young man. “If I could take a couple of minutes of your time, I would like to demonstrate the very latest in high-powered vacuum cleaners.” 
“Go away!” yelled old Mrs. O’Malley. “I haven’t got any money!” and she proceeded to close the door. 
Quick as a flash, the young man wedged his foot in the door and pushed it wide open. “Don’t be too hasty!” he said. “Not until you have at least seen my demonstration.” And with that, he emptied a bucket of horse manure onto her hallway carpet.  “If this vacuum cleaner does not remove every trace of horse manure from your carpet, Madam, I will personally eat the remainder.” 
“Right,” said Mrs. O’Malley, “I hope you’ve got a good appetite, because
the electricity was cut off this morning.”

Paddy and Mick go down to the local job centre, but there is a big sign on the door reading “Job interviews today for deaf people only”.
Wanting work they decide to put on an act. Paddy walks into the office, and the interviewer says “Shut the door”. Paddy does, and the man says to Paddy “You’re not deaf at all. Get out”.
Paddy leaves and tells Mick whatever you do don’t shut the door. Mick goes into the office, and the interviewer says, “Shut the door”.
Mick replies, “You can’t fool me, shut it yourself.”

A “Salesman Wanted” sign was in the window so Murphy went in and told the boss, “I-I-I w-w-waannn-t the j- joooob-b.”
“I don’t know if this job would suit you because of your speaking impediment.
” Murphy replied, “I h-h-havvve a w-wi-wiiiife and s-s-s-six k- kkkids, iiii-I re-really neeeed thi-thi-this j-j-job!”
“OK, here are three Bibles. Go out and sell them.”
Murphy came back an hour later and said, “H-here-sss your m-m-money.”
The boss was impressed, so he gave Murphy a dozen more Bibles and two hours later Murphy said, “Her- ers y-yooour m-m-money.” The boss said, “Brilliant! You sold more Bibles in three hours than anyone has sold in a week. Tell me, what do you say to the people when they come to the door?”
“W-welllll,” said Murphy, “I r-r-ring the d-door bell, a-a-and s-s-say ‘H- Hel-Hello, M-m- maaaaddam, d-d-do you w-w- want t-t t-to buy thi-thi-this B-B-Bible, oooor d-d-do y-you w-w-want m’me t-toooo read it t-t-t-t-to you?’”
