On Saturday 21/7/2018, in truly appalling conditions, Nelson competed against Marist in the final of the NPD Tasman Trophy. It was a tough game and Nelson emerged the victors (16-6).

With the cup safely locked in the trophy cabinet the team can now reflect on a successful season built on a lot of hard work and real dedication.
Nelson coach Kade Heke said the boys were "absolutely stoked" to take home the championship. "There was a lot of effort from the boys."
A special shout out to the supporters who braved challenging conditions to cheer on the team.
