October 3, 2018 October 2018, Sports Comments Off on TUHIRANGI JAB RUGBY

The 2018 Tuhirangi JAB rugby season has come to an end but we have had a great year.  We had approx. 45 children registered and they played across 6 different teams ranging from Under 6 Rippa through to the Under 13’s.

Martinborough Golf Report

Grumpies winners this month have included Peter Price and Ray Matthews, hopefully Terry might give us a glimpse of their infamous ladies tee league soon.

The 9-holers have missed a couple of days due to inclement weather but made up for it on following weeks, winners have been; Gaylene Delby-Neal and Jan Fergusson. The Thurlowe 4BBB was won by Sherryl Howie & Billie Holmes.
