This Saturday the Rugby World Cup makes a special visit to Waiheke and players, parents and the public are welcome to go along to the Onetangi Sports Park for a hold of the trophy and a photo. Although the cup has been on a national tour, Waiheke Rugby Club is the only one in the country to get a personal visit. First up will be all the jun- ior teams starting with the Sprats at 7.30am. Each team will have 20 to 30 minutes to grab a team photo and any individual shots. At 9am there will be a big group shot of all the club's members and after the Waiheke High School's turn at 10.20am the public get their chance. Time will be limited as the cup will be on the noon ferry back to Auckland and the safety of the trophy cabinet. Club president Vern Whitehead says: The way some of the junior rugby boys are developing, it would come as no surprise if in about 15 years time, four or five of them get to hold it for a sec- ond time, in a somewhat more public and prominent arena.'' Because of the long week- end, there were only a couple of Waiheke rugby games played last Saturday. As usual, the Waiheke footy teams acquitted them- selves well, with a win and a draw to their credit. Under-7s Roosters 13 Marist Black 13 Waiheke Roosters were evenly matched against Marist Black with both teams fighting it out try for try. Great defence and fast side-stepping on both sides led to the team's first draw of the season. Player of the day was awarded to Rory Broughton who is back on form with fan- tastic defence and three tries. Alex Jacomb received tack- ler of the day. Coach's choices went to Harrison Marsden and Joe Driver for quick rips. The Roosters are gearing up for another big day next Saturday with all the Wai- heke teams playing at home on the annual club day. Under-6s Pirates 15 tries University 12 tries The Pirates bounced back from last week's defeat in some style, outplaying and outscoring a physical Univer- sity side. Under-6 rugby is technically a non-contact sport but after a number of aggressive fends and collision tackles by University in the first half, the Pirates responded in kind, and imposed themselves in no uncertain terms on the oppo- sition. James Thornbury in par- ticular, demonstrated the art of going low around the legs and was tireless in defence, for which he was awarded tackler of the day. Another big crowd, once again garbed in pirates' moustaches and eye patches, gathered under the skull and crossbones flag flying proudly from the crossbar and cheered themselves hoarse as the Pirates put together their finest display of the season. At times the continuity was a joy to behold, one move involving no less than eight passes before the ever pres- ent and strong running Oli- ver Baverstock finished it off with his fourth try of the day, and in the process confirming his position as player of the day. Coach's choice awards included Leo Crawford for a strong running game which brought him two tries, Luke Potter who also bagged a brace, Jasper Peterken, Lucas Unverricht, our youngest player, and Nico Cumingwood who, for the fourth time this season, gave a display of rugby nous which belies his tender years. Taine Jackson was his usual enthusiastic and capable self around the park. Tom Flay got his name on the score sheet for a second week running with a cleverly worked move on the blindside and Miles Rae was useful in attack. It was another very solid team performance. Under-6s go down but fun was the winner LEAGUE On the run: The under-6s in their second game of the season. Fullers Waiheke Rams under-6s restricted had a great game on Sunday at Victoria Park against East Coast Bays. This was their second game of the season and our boys did us proud, even though they lost, they played a great game. It was a fantastic turn out with the whole team participating and having fun. Well done boys -- keep up the good work. Thanks also to Matt, Tracey and all the parents and caregivers for all their support. -- Penny Paikea Posts in place for practising RUGBY Try time: Ex-Auckland rugby player Tony Wood tries out the new rugby posts at Waiheke Primary School. Sales of burgers in term four last school year helped pur- chase a set of rugby posts for students at Waiheke Pri- mary School. The new posts were officially opened by famous Waiheke kicker'' Tony Wood and principal Lyn Price in front of the whole school and representatives of companies who had helped. Ms Price says the desire to have a set of rugby posts came from rugby fever dur- ing last year's world cup. With just one set, as the playing field is short, they will really be for kicking practice'', she says. Freightlink was thanked for bringing them over. Placemakers, always a great friend of our school'', was thanked for paint and concrete and Bee-Line thanked for the use of scaf- folding.
