Rebels stand up well
against college side
Wanganui City College 36
- Northern Rebels 17
The Northern Rebels under-14
rugby team faced up to a top
Wanganui City College academy
team at Taihape's Memorial Park
on Saturday, May 5.
Coming up against such a team
was a huge challenge for Northern
compared to their first game of the
season when they faced Wanganui
Northern's coach Colin McFar-
lane said the first half saw the
team put up a good hard contest,
competing well in most areas of
the game, however, Wanganui led
12-5 at half time.
The second half saw Wanganui
playing into the sun, so the plan
was to kick and chase, and turn
Wanganui's big forwards around,
however they kept the ball and
used it well.
What ball the Rebels did get
was under pressure making it
hard to follow our plan,'' coach
Northern's manager Shelley
Noble said the young Wanganui
academy team eats, breathes and
lives rugby week-long. Their coach
said they train every morning
from 6am until 8am, have break-
fast and go to school, then back
into training after school.
A very tough life for men so
young and one which requires
ample discipline and dedication.
With that in mind I felt very
proud of the way Northern Rebels
played and conducted themselves
on the field as well as off,'' Mrs
She said Northern, being an
amalgamated team from Ruapehu
and Taihape, are only able to train
once a week as a full squad.
They have obstacles to over-
come; distance being the main
Northern Rebels do not lack
anywhere else though.
They most certainly have a
dedicated support team in their
schools, parents and whanau
whanui there to help coaching,
travel, administration, cooking,
washing and mothering.
The team are gelling well and
becoming good comrades. I believe
this was evident in the way they
came together and played on
Trophy team defeat
Waimarino at Taihape
By IN THE ROUGH
The President's Trophy team gave
one of their better performances
in the qualifying series when they
defeated their good friends and
neighbours Waimarino 9-1 at Tai-
hape in ideal conditions.
The course was in superb con-
dition with plenty of run in the
fairways and greens excellent to

win. Danny Mickleson had the
best result winning 6/4.
The juniors all scored better

Top win starts season
Taihape Area School 5 -
Dannevirke High School 3
The 2012 hockey season got away in an
exciting fashion on May 7 with the Tai-
hape Area School's (TAS) mixed team
taking a win over Dannevirke High
School in an entertaining and high
quality game that showcased the dev-
eloping talents of the TAS players.
Centre forward Nathan Chaney
scored all five goals and had an out-
standing game. He was well supported
by the rest of the team. Goalie
Cheyenne Williams made an excellent
debut and was well-supported by the
aggressive, skilful work of backs Luke
Smith and Nicole Rees. This combin-
ation has the ability to develop into a
formidable defensive unit.
The mid-field of Eden Scott, Gina
Swanson, Rowan Bradley and Kerryn
Clark worked hard on both attack and
defence and provided quality ball for
the forwards. Rowan is playing at cen-
tre half this season, a new position for
him but his distribution was outstand-
ing at times.
The forward line of Jack Murrell,
Kayla Tapu, Nathan Chaney, Max
Sage, Dylan Sinock and Johnny Sage
placed the Dannevirke defence under
extreme pressure at times.
By PAUL GEORGE
A rainy Saturday in the
Horowhenua was the prospect for
the TAS football team's third
grade game of the season and
yet again we could not muster
a full team. But where we lack
numbers, we make up for in
No problem for the Horowhenua
Rangers, however, who were our
opponents on Saturday. They had
a full team plus reserves.
Our plan was to strengthen our
defence and rely on long through
balls for our forwards -- and it
worked. Attack after attack was
thwarted by our defence but our
through balls didn't seem to be
working. Half time score was 0-0.
In the second half a through
ball from the left and into the back
of the net it went. One nil to TAS
and then a bad slip in defence led
to a penalty, one all.
Taihape-under 13s were out-
played by Ruahine Falcons 8-0 but
once again each player played
