Club Shield

The Club Shield

Donated by Lloyd East for a Player who has shown their commitment to the club through junior years, commitment to the game of rugby, to achievements made, to past and present team members, and most of all the commitment to commit.

This award takes into account, years with the Club and Rugby playing history.


Elijah Yabaki

This young man from J8 has had enormous talent, for example, running with a ball in one hand since from 6 years old.   As coaches, we cannot wait to see where this will take him.   He is always at training early, working on his goal-kicking or one-handed long passes (not coach-approved).   He has the skill, but does the receiver?   

He always wants to improve his game by asking the coaches questions.  He has an infectious smile, one that we all love to see.

Black Fern Trophy

Donated by Anoushka and Natasha Dallow for the girl scoring the highest number of points in the season.


Kathryn Grimwood, Elizabeth Grimwood

These girls both show huge promise in the female game. Both commit themselves to every tackle and are great runners of the ball and supporters. Both are team players and always support their mates. Both have shown through her dedication to the game they have grown to a level where they can help teach.

Both have helped out teaching the non-tacklers the technique through our tackle clinics recently.

Black Fern Trophy
Captains Cup

Captains Cup

Awarded to a team captain who has shown an outstanding leadership role with their team.


Fergus Mahan, Quinn Thompson

As Co-Captains (a back & a forward), the boys have led the team by example around the field, respectively questioning the ref to clarify a ruling and guiding their team when needed.   As coaches, we deliberately chose a back-and-forward captain, and our season results have proven we made the right call.

George & Martin Driver Memorial Cup

Donated by George & Martin Driver for outstanding J3 loose forward, including attendance at training, and attitude.


Rory Koolen

This boy is an absolute menace. He terrifies opposition forwards. He has won more turnovers than any other player in our team and probably as many as the other loose forwards combined.  He is quick off the mark, has controlled aggression and tackles like McCaw at his finest. He is made for the back row. He can transition from attack to defence in a second, and his competitive nature means no matter what happens to him during the game, he has the desire to get up and go again, overcoming a couple of tricky injuries during the season. We missed him when he wasn't there, further highlighting his importance to the team.

The Rock

The Rock

Presented by the Goldfinch family for the outstanding contribution a tight five player from the J1 team. Who has contributed to the team's performance by carrying the ball forward as well as all a tight fives off the ball tasks.


Eli Brown

This young man has owned the front of the lineout. He played a loose lock. He has dominated being over the ball, which has contributed to our team going forward and provides the ball for the backs to be able to score tries.

Barney Eva Player of the Year

Donated by Barney Eva for the most outstanding J3 Player of the Year.

In 2023, the award was altered to be for the J2 player of the year.


Benedict Kenrick

The player has really shown his class this year. We could talk about the many tries and line breaks or the way he takes responsibility for the kicking duties and the way he leads the backline with his knowledge and experience. But the best example of why he has earned this nomination was his cover tackle against ECB White during the curtain raiser before the Prems game. 

The game finished 27-24 to J2 Gold, so without this player's never-say-die attitude, we would have lost the game and the bragging rights against a team that went three seasons unbeaten until that day. He was a good 10 metres behind the opposition winger when he broke the line. Ben turned and pursued him as if his life depended on it. He nabbed the Bays player 10 metres from the line, got to his feet, won the ball and cleared his lines. This lad has contributed so well to this team during 2023, and that tackle will live long in the memory.
