I was thrilled to open the Wairarapa Times Age today (Saturday 25 August) and see the headline on sports page was "Future Canes in the making" Underneath there was a photo of our very own Joseph Gordon.
We are delighted to have had Joe, Issac Bracewell and Finn Yeats, (who while not having played for us this year did play his JAB with Carterton) named in the Hurricanes Heartland Under 20's team.
What an exceptional year our boys have had with 25 rugby players being selected for representative honours from Wairarapa Bush Under 11's up to the Wairarapa Bush Heartland team and beyond as today's WTA article shows.
There are also coaches, managers and a physio representing Carterton in 12 positions in varying teams from again Wairarapa Age group teams through to Wairarapa Bush and further to Assistant Coach and Manager of the New Zealand Heartland XV.
A huge congratulations to all those involved in representative sides in any capacity. You are where you are because of your CTB spirit.
