President's Letter


As the representative season goes on more and more of our players are being named in representative sides - we are so proud of the calibre of players we have in our club the way they rise to the occasion in which they find themselves.  There are still a few representative games at the park so as the weather warms (hopefully) we will be in for a good afternoon of rugby. 



Adam Gordon and Samuel Morison were named in in the Heartland Under 19's team to play in the National Under 19 Jock Hobbs Memorial Tournament to be held 8 - 14 September.  This team is up against some big teams from around the country and these two young men will come away wiser and encouraged with their rugby.   



Vincent Liardet-Smith, Terongo Tekii, Ethan Pinfold and Maguire Smith have all been playing in the Wairarapa Bush Development side this year - all punching for further honours.



Zach Wakefield and Joe Gordon playing in the Heartland Under 20's Tournament and then being named in the Heartland Under 20's team to play against the Hurricanes Under 20's side. An outstanding achievement.



Fontayne Alison and Konnor Vainu have been in the Under 12 side to represent Wairarapa Bush - Keep it all going boys! 



Gavin Hodder and Mark Rutene were manager and coach for the New Zealand Heartland team that played Manu Samoa in a warm up game for the Manu before the World Cup.  Gavin and Mark started this partnership 10 years ago when they held the same positions for our Carterton Premier team in 2009. 



Other coaches from our fold are Joe Harwood Head Coach, Heartland side and Chris Senior Coach Under 18's.  Congratulations.



We're very proud of and thrilled for all these men and excited that there are very obvious pathways for those who want to further their rugby career in any form from Carterton.  This is shown in Isaac Bracewell who played for us last year and after some thought decided to move to Wellington where he has been in the Wellington Development side this year.  Also with Gavin and Mark who have had quite the journey over the last 10 years.



All the above are quite the ambassadors for our club and we wish all our reps all the very best.
