2018 Season Wrap

Nelson wins the NPD Tasman Trophy

Congratulations to the Seniors on their great win

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.

Congratulations to the Nelson Rugby Football Club Under 11 team, being the first team to take home the John Goodman Memorial Trophy. This was the first junior sevens tournament run by the club, and with perfect weather and amazing organisation from our Junior Committee it was a huge success.

Congratulations to all involved, it's a huge achievement in a highly competitive competition. Check out ShutterSport for all the photos from the game.


Our Junior School Holiday Programmes

During the April school holidays we ran another junior training day. It was a huge success with 76 kids getting involved and learning a range of skills from former Mako's Captain Andrew Goodman and a number of our Senior team members. We'll be aiming to run more training days during upcoming school holidays, so keep an eye on the website for details.
