2013 Police Vetting - JAB Coaches and Referees
We appreciate that the requirement of Police vetting for Small Blacks Rugby Coaches and referees solely focused on Small Blacks Rugby adds some additional demand on those who approach people about being involved in our game. However, we are confident the process will be as smooth as possible and provide parents, whanau and others with the knowledge Rugby is taking steps to ensure a safe and enjoyable environment for young people involved in our game. We thank you for your support of this important initiative.

The U20 competition has been a great success with some very good rugby being displayed by all teams.
Congratulations and a huge thank you to all concerned for taking this initiative and running with it. It was very positive from all angles and that was due to the hard work by your clubs and those who offered to coach in this grade. New players and new coaches – hope this translates into a fantastic club year for 2013. Thanks also, as always, to the voluntary referees from PBRRA, who kindly extended their rugby season also.

Club Finals Results (30 July)
Kevin Hollis Glass Pirates and Wairoa Athletic make it back to back wins, two years in a row, in the Lee Brothers Shield and Lew Patterson Cup.
There was a good crowd at Rugby Park, the weather held off and Pirates beat YMP 20 - 8 in the Premier Grade final. Kelvin Smith picked up two tries, his first after a poor YMP kick fell into Kelvin's hands and with plenty of space in front of him it was a foot race over 70m to open up. His second was at the end of a very clever grubber kick by Duane Hihi. YMP threatened to come back in the last 20 minutes of the game when they finally found the try line. But some enterprising thrusts towards the line fell short due to some strong defence by Pirates.
In the curtainraiser Senior One final between Wairoa Athletic and Ormondos Waikohu, it was a very tense but low scoring affair. With under 10 minutes left in the game it was all tied at 5 - 5 and extra time was looking likely. Towards the end of the game, Wairoa Athletic were awarded a number of penalties and it took a successful penalty kick by Moss Duran to seal the win and the Lew Patterson Cup. Final score was 8 - 5. It was a seesaw match throughout the entire 80 minutes and showed that both these teams deserved to be in the final. It was a game that left both teams supporters on the edge of their seat.
