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. We look forward to it being an annual event from here on.
After a brilliant season, our Senior A's took home the Nelson Bays Division 1 Title. They beat Wanderers 41-19 in the final, reclaiming the Title for the first time since 2012.
After a gruelling 80 minutes which included a late drop goal and a 78th minute try from one of our props, the NRFC Senior A side won the 2016 NPD Tasman Trophy final.
Congratulations to all involved, it's a huge achievement in a highly competitive competition. Check out ShutterSport for all the photos from the game.
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.
