March 2018 (Pre-season)
I'm thrilled to see so many attending training. Coaches of the Premiers and Reserves have expressed their delight at numbers as well. This speaks of dedication, discipline and CTB mateship.
The Premiers had a good pre-season game today against Palmerston North Old Boys Marist with the whole squad having a run. Coaches were able to see players' strengths as they ran out on the freshly marked pitch (thanks must to go George Rodger and John Harwood). The only real complaint was from the ref - he thought the grass was too long.
With a few more trainings before the Premiers season kicks off Chris and Neil have the opportunity to shape this squad in to a team the club can be proud of. It is fantastic to have young talented players fresh from college join our ranks. Together with some of our more experienced players I believe we will have line-up that will give us a great exhibition of rugby throughout the season.
The JAB had their first muster today, with another on Wednesday 28th March at 3.30pm. It was encouraging to see so many young players coming through. This bodes for a great season for young rugby players in our district.
