Senior Touch Rugby Report 2015

I would like to thank all the players for their contribution to the team this season; they’ve represented the college proudly. I would like to thank Mr Andrew Auimatagi, Mr Richard Washington, Johnny Van der Velde and Phillip Vaifale for all the support and coaching throughout the year, without your hard work none of this would be possible. You would not want to miss Mr Washington’s inspiring speeches. Farewell to Harry Kirk, Te Morehu Reweti and Moresby Peseta as it was their last year playing for the college, however I am sure they will be back to coach or contribute however possible. Next year we will be seeking redemption as our team will be one of the most experienced in Canterbury with some talented players coming through the ranks at the college. Luke Payne, Patrick Elia, Klayton Waikato and I were all a part of the senior touch team who made nationals in 2013. As we will be returning for our fourth year in the team, our leadership and experience will be vital come 2016. #nationals 2k16 Tane Wallace
