Its been a long time coming, 28 years in fact but Martinborough are proud holders of the Tui Cup!!  Our Premier team won against Gladstone in a close entertaining game 36-32.  It felt like the whole town was at the game and the support was heard and noticed by the players on the field.  To top off our day our Reserve team had a win against Eketahuna 33-27 in their Plate Final for the Presidents Cup.

Such a great day for the Club – thank you to all our Players, Coaches, Managers, Committee, Sponsors and Supporters that have contributed to making 2019 such an epic year!!

Our JAB players have a few weeks left for their season so still a bit of local rugby to support.

Our Prize Giving will be held on the 24 August from 5.30pm for all grades, Junior & Senior.  There will also be a Senior Jersey auction – your chance to own a piece of green and black!!

Congratulations to Tristan Flutey, Tipene Haira, Nathan Hunt, James Pakoti, Alex Priest and Tim Priest for their selection to the Wairarapa Bush Heartland Squad.

Congratulations to George Bunnett, Reece Calkin, Nikora Ewe, Logan Flutey, Jono Hartnell, Stanley Rhind & Chance Ropiha for making the Wairarapa Bush Development Squad.
