We are thrilled to have had two games end up on the right side of the ledger this weekend.
Masterton Red Star brought their best to the Premiers game on Friday night and kept us scoreless for some time. We were able to capitalise on the strengths we have in our squad and score 7 times. Swirling winds made it difficult for our kickers however. We sit third on the table with 11 points.
It was pleasing to see two Centurions, playing in our new jerseys with their names sublimated in to the fabric of the jersey with other Centurions and Life Members. Blair Heming came on at prop and Brock Price came on to the side of the scrum. Both scored tries.
Sadly lock Francis Muller suffered a broken leg and was taken to Wairarapa Hospital for surgery. Our thoughts go to Francis for a speedy recovery. Thank you to WBRU staff, ambulance personnel and the medical team at the hospital for their dedication and skill.
The top of the table Reserves team played in a hard fought game against Pioneer on Saturday. The battle was up front as well as at the breakdown. The backs had some good runs and showed skill and flair.
The depth within this team, their dedication to training and the club, and the culture within the team is bringing great results.
A reminder that Old Timers Day is Saturday 26th May.
