Photo: PHILLIPA KARN Dan and Linda Marincas are mak- ing sure that our canine friends don't miss out on rugby fever. The owners of Waiheke Vets in Oneroa have created a New Zea- land rugby jersey to keep pooches warm during the All Blacks' route to victory and beyond and hope to raise funds to support Waiheke wildlife in the process. And if the mighty All Blacks are not your team of choice, the jerseys are also available for supporters of England, Scotland, South Africa, Australia, Ireland and France. The Marincas are planning to use any profit from the sales of the doggy rugby jerseys to support their wildlife care on Waiheke Island. The couple, who took over their island practice two years ago, take in animals in need of medical attention and regularly find them- selves with a menagerie of Wai- heke wildlife in their surgery. We treat wildlife just like we would people's pets. The cost of care for these animals is high, but we will not let an animal suffer, or put them down unnecessarily. Selling a few jerseys will help pay for their care,'' Linda says. We thought it was a great way to show support for our team and keep our own dog Berty Boo warm at the same time.'' Linda says the couple wanted the jerseys to be New Zealand- made so they knocked on lots of doors until they had made arrangements with companies from Tauranga to Pakuranga. Every one was keen to get on board.'' Requests for the jerseys have come in from Ireland and Hong Kong and the Marincas' daughter Andrada, 9, has sent one to her favourite American dog, President Obama's dog Bo at the White House. The limited edition rugby jerseys come in eight sizes. The jerseys are available from Waiheke Vets in Oneroa or online at the website www.doggyrugbyjersey. co.nz School's final game RUGBY REPORT As the Rugby World Cup con- tinues to build momentum, Waiheke High School is mak- ing final preparations for the closing match of the season against visiting Australian club side St Ives next week. It has been a long and rewarding season for both of Waiheke High School rugby teams. The fourth grade fell at the last hurdle in the final of the Auckland Secondary School 4B competition but managed to redeem themselves with a standout performance against the visiting Tongan U85kg squad two weeks ago. The fifth grade side pro- duced some stellar per- formances throughout the season securing a place in the semifinals. However, after a disappointing loss there they will be looking to make a return to form in their final match of the season. Having travelled to New Zealand in order to both watch and play rugby, the St Ives players, managers and travelling parents will also be making the most of what Waiheke has to offer before heading to Onetangi Sports Park to play. They will no doubt be keen to avoid the bitterness of defeat that was sampled by the national side at the hands of Ireland on Saturday. The fixture will be played at Onetangi Sports Park on September 28, and kicks off at 4pm with the perform- ance of the Waiheke School haka. It should be a great match especially as the fifth grade are determined to finish their season with a resounding win. Meanwhile, it's another big week for world cup rugby -- leading up to the biggest game so far for the All Blacks, against their old nemesis France on Saturday at 8.30pm. Then on Sunday there are two more big ones -- Samoa v Fiji at 3.30pm and Argentina v Scotland at 8.30pm. All games are live on the big screen at the Rugby Club, Onetangi Sports Park. -- Vern Whitehead Any colour but yellow Go the Irish: A contingent of Ireland supporters from Waiheke visited the Queens Wharf fanzone and attended Saturday night's match against the Aussies where supporters of the Emerald Isle team were not disappointed.
