Welcome to Ngatapa!

Club Captain's Corner 2014

Saturday 12th April

The pitch was perfect on Saturday for good rugby, the rain had it nice and soft but the sun and the heat came out and kept it pretty dry. Both rugby teams played at Merial Paddy's Park. Larsawn Ngatapa had a convincing win over Horouta 41-12 and Harvest Transport Ngatapa beat GBHS barbarians 36-14, it took a bit of help from a few prems players, Marty Bayley and Sione Ngatu to beat Boys High, good luck to the Boys High team as they enter the senior one grade and mix it with the big boys. Their first game up shows they will be competitive.

Also having a home game was Gisborne Glass Ngatapa soccer team, they played the Wainui Demons who almost gave them a bit of a fright drawing the game 3 all

Farmlands Ngatapa played YMP and went down 30-18

Hayden Bruce Contracting Ngatapa played 2 games winning both 33-7 against Lytton and 22-20 against Rangatira

Fred Tate Wools Ngatapa also winning both their games 18-14 against GGHS Gold and 35-31 against OBM

Team 4 unfortunately after a great come back couldn't quite win their first game going down 19-23 against GGHS but they managed to come back in the second game and win against Matawai 29-16

Saturday 5th April

It's about time daylight savings happened, these dark mornings right up to 7am were getting a bit depressing, a bit like watching the Blues, last week was meant to be the week that changed everything for them, but they managed to lose badly to the Brumbies. The Chiefs will be glad to be heading home from South Africa, 2 draws in a row is pretty uncommon in rugby, but I guess they will be happy with any points they can get over there.

At local level, Larsawn Ngatapa survived the bus trip to Wairoa and managed to get a 20-13 win over Athletic, the win came at a cost with Scott Milne and Simon Ward leaving the field injured, with Scott off this saw Marty Bayley, normally a loosie, come on at 2nd 5 for his first game of the season. Its only week 3 and our backline may be looking a bit depleted. Here's hoping that Scott and Simon can come back from their injuries soon

Harvest Transport Ngatapa had their first game on Saturday and it will be one they will want to forget pretty quickly. They started the game with only 14 players, including Johnny Ingram at 1st 5, they managed to convince a couple of guys on the side line to have a run for them. OBM, who's senior ones team may actually be better than their prems team with players like Cowboy Ingram and  Sam Cairns gave the boys a hiding in the end, about 80-8

Netball,

Farmlands Ngatapa played 2 games and have stepped up a notch since last week, they couldn't  manage a win, but made big improvements from last week's opening round.

H.B Contracting Ngatapa had 2 wins against YMP and Breeze in.

Saturday 29th March

The first home game of the season at Merial Paddy's Park was literally a scorcher - one of the hottest days of the summer, let alone one of the last days of March. While the crowd sat under the shade of the deck and absorbed a few cold ones, the boys out on the pitch, leaked bucket loads of sweat and sent a cloud of dust up everytime a ruck was formed. It was a great day to be watching rugby.

At the end of 80 minutes and after having 13 players on the paddock while there were 2 boys in the bin,Larsawn Ngatapa managed to beat OBM 25-10, to take their first win of the season.

The highlight of the game was how much in one week the boys had come together and how much more confidence they had.

Player of the day - Karl Macpherson

Farmlands Ngatapa and Hayden Bruce Contractors Ngatapa netball teams played in the Kathleen Henderson tournament on Saturday, in the same heat the boys had the netball girls had to play 6 games! There were mixed results in the games, but overall a good way to start the season with a tournament type competition to get some game time and combinations sorted

Merial Paddy's Park

You may have noticed I have started to refer to the field at the club as Merial Paddy's Park. The following is a bit of an explanation as to why.

Merial have been long supporters of Ngatapa and have had the naming rights to the grounds.

David Lowe is the new Merial rep and there is no doubt that he will be around for a few home games this season as he is keen as to get  amongst the action- even though he is Hawke's Bay based! Over the off season a few of the old timers (Tim Sherriff)  put their heads together and decided that we should name the park Paddy's Park.

The following is written by Tim Sherriff to explain, who Paddy is and why the new name

 

The Ngatapa Rugby club has decided to refer to our rugby field at Patutahi as "Paddy's Park".

After consultation with several older members of our club it was felt it was important to preserve our history for future generations.

Paddy Wanklyn , a committee member from 1960, played a vital part in our club for 20 plus years.

He was Club captain and a coach but he was also the chief negotiator with the Domains Board in acquiring the land we now use for our home ground.

With his own bulldozer he spent countless hours levelling the land so it was suitable for playing rugby.

Admittedly he did not achieve this all on his own but he had that hardnosed, roll your sleeves up,  get stuck in, get the job done attitude that has made the club what it is today.

We have had so many with that same sense of purpose. Some have been honoured with life membership but it is felt that it is appropriate to use the name of the main person responsible when referring to our ground.   

Tim Sherriff

I think it's a great way to remember someone that did so much for the club and was a pioneer in building the great facilities we have today.

Saturday 22nd March

Its go time again, the 2014 rugby season has begun,

The annual Tiny White Day drew good crowds down to the Oval, and much to some of the forwards relief, a bit of rain had managed to soften the track up for them too

Unfortunately the rain was about the only thing that went in the favour of the Larsawn Ngatapa boys, who went down 36-9 to a pretty sharp looking HSOB side

With up to 8 senior players to come back in to the side over the next few weeks this was a good experience for the younger men in the team, even with Paul Randall (29) on the wing the average age of the back line looked to be about 19.5 years old - these guys will all grow with more game time and we must remember that Ngatapa lost this first game to HSOB last year also, so it might not be a bad thing if history repeats itself!

Low point of the game was seeing James Alford been assisted from the field with what looks like medium term ligament damage in his knee, hopefully the 2013 Poverty Bay rep can recover well and be back on the paddock for the second round.

Home game this weekend at Merial Paddys Park (more info to come on the new name) for the Larsawn Ngatapa team

I would like to announce that Farmlands have stepped up for the 2014 year to sponsor the club and will be the naming right sponsors of our premier netball team.

Farmlands Ngatapa have their first game this weekend also

Harvest Transport Ngatapa Senior ones rugby side does not kick off until the 5th of April but we are stoked to announce that we have an old face back. Nigel Henare who has agreed to coach the senior ones this year.
