The l2th Grade Maroon has had an enjoyable season with excellent results considering the late start and haphazard way the team was put together by the club.
We played 15 games of rugby in total , won 8, lost 5 , and drew 2. Each member of the team has made giant strides in their playing ability and confidence has grown during the season.
However, the greatest thrill from the coaches point of view has been the excellent team spirit and high morale generated by the boys themselves with a noticeable absence of bickering and infighting.
Adam Bouzard centre, the featherweight of the team, plenty of speed, use it!
Gene Burton hooker, one of the younger members, showed plenty of spirit.
Carl Brogan halfback, travelled from Mt. Albert each week, a gifted player, but a little greedy.
John Cullen hooker, once settled down, became a very good hooker and team member.
Matthew Douglas No. B, play improved during the season' a good battler.
Michael Fotiades halfback, convert from League, tremendous tackler, great ability, will go a long way in rugby.

Michael Lochore flanker , dedicated, has shown tremendous improvement this season.
