Hey team Katipo,

Well it was great weather to kick off our season on Saturday. Sorry I missed the game, I was with our older son’s rugby team which was playing at the same time.

Here’s a quick coaches overview of the game in my absence:

“Top effort from team Katipo on Saturday, really good seeing our kids out on the park finally, especially those who missed the pre-season game. – for your first-up game you should be proud.

Katipo was unlucky, getting pipped 19-17 to Wellington after leading 17-7, playing with 14 for a period in the second half after mistakenly thinking we had a player in the bin.

But to our team’s credit, they kept on fighting to the end to try claw back the game.”

Well done Katipo and keep up the enthusiasm!

Notable mentions:
Zach for taking out P.O.D from the opposition for another strong performance at #8, demonstrating some strong and committed running off the back of the scrum.
Otis for taking out P.O.D from us for relentless work at the breakdowns to recover or secure ball for us.
Paige for supporting her team even though she was unwell, top effort and 10 out of 10 for putting the team first.

Lastly, this season we will also be having a “chocolate bar/lolly” tackler of the day award, which Ian forgot to mention on Saturday.

This went to Whakaria at the weekend, for some superb one-on-one tackles from his position on wing, showing plenty of courage to make these “must make” tackles. Well done.

Ian will mention this at practice on Wednesday and hand over his award…

Onto this weekend – remember WEIGH IN IS THIS SATURDAY AT 10AM and we need all our Katipo kids there please!

Where, when and what to bring:
Weigh-in is at Te Rauparaha Arena ,17 Parumoana St, Porirua this Saturday.
Please be at the Arena foyer at 10am, keep an eye out for our team and we’ll gather ready for mustering.
Please leave enough time to find a carpark. Te Rauparaha Arena has 220 free car parking spaces available within the main parking area. There is free kerbside parking on Heriot Drive, Wineera Drive and Norrie Street within a 5 minute walk
Players MUST wear their Poneke Jersey
Once the team is ushered through, only the team coaches and manager will accompany them. NO PARENTS are allowed through
We will bring your children to you at the REAR ENTRANCE once weigh-in is complete.
FINALLY, after weigh-in we have organised a training game against Tawa, kick-off 11.45am (depending on how quickly weigh-in goes) in Tawa (venue to be advised, but mostly likely at Lyndhurst).

We know it’s a big chunk of your day, but it’d be great to keep the momentum going and get all our kids there.

Sing out if you have any queries, otherwise see you all at practice on Wednesday, 4.30pm, rain, hail or shine.

GO Team Katipo!
