Club day a success, on and off the pitch


Super Rugby players Billy Guyton, James Lowe and Marty Banks were on hand for Waimea Old Boys’ club day, inspiring the division one side to an important 23-17 win over Nelson, and also signing autographs for junior players in the morning.
The presence of their three stars was a huge boost for the club and gave the JAB players an in-sight into where rugby can take them with talent and hard work.
James showed his class scoring a second half try, while Marty booted six penalties, as Star & Garter Waimea claimed the Noel Barton Trophy and the all important four competition points.
Waimea are now sitting in seventh place on the Bayleys Tasman Trophy standings with a two win/two loss record, and are in fourth place in the Car Company division one championship, just two points behind second place Marist.
Waimea will now travel to Blenheim on Saturday to take on Moutere.
In other results from club day Super Liquor Waimea Old Boys beat Nelson 46-5 in their division two match, the Waimea Old Boys women’s team beat Stoke 49-12 and lost to Marist 22-12 in their ten-a-side games, and the Under-18 Waimea College Old Boys beat Moutere 24-17.
