Suburbs put on a great display of team work
when they played Cobden Kiwis at Hargraves
Some of the boys who have not been
as prominent made great efforts. Keelen
Pattinson had his best game yet and was
awarded player of day. West Coast player of
the day was Kioni Haddock who had a great
game on defence and attack. Manu Jones also
received an award for his first game where he
played the whole game.
Overall the whole team played really
well, and Cobden were great and fair play
Hokitika played a depleted Marist side on
Saturday. Hokitika played some great footy
on a damp day, with some lovely offloads and
passing. William Johansson, Lucas Bradbury
and William Simpson made some great try
The same three boys scored the tries with
some really good support play that proved
fruitful. Good runs and team player of the day
went to Monaro Morgan-Vaatusu and West
Coast player of the day to Louis Pearson
West Coast player of the days.—
Bower (Cobden Kohinoor Keas), Kolton
McLean (Waro-rakau), Louis Pierson
(Hokitika), Bessie Barry (Marist), Keoni
Haddock (Suburbs), Rarta Warren (Cobden-
Kohinoor Kiwis), Aleisha Shaw (Brunner),
Blaze Crestani (Runanga).
Waro-rakau played Marist in a free-flowing
game. Q uaid McLean had a great game with
strong tackling and running. Troy Fayen had
his best game of the season with some good
carries. Marists’ Shaylyn Ilton was a stand out
Hokitika had a great performance against
Cobden with strong direct runs, from Jaxon
Carter and Jaylem Aitken, straight up the
middle resulting in first class tries. Lara
Dalley continues to improve each week on
attack with solid runs and even throwing
some off loads. Liam Delore is proving hard
to take down, zipping around the opposition
and Jake Dalley who got team player of the
day for getting straight up off the line putting
pressure on the Cobden side.
West Coast players of day.— Q uaid McLean
(Waro-rakau), Shaylyn Ilton (Marist), Jaylem
Aitken (Hokitika) and Nia Johnston (Cobden
Hokitika faced a strong Cobden side. Hard
tackling by Ben Rasmussen earned him the
well deser ved team player of the day. The team
welcomed new player Ngarama Weepu who
had a strong first game. Some strong runs by
Bruce Millar kept the Taipos competitive and
earned him West Coast player of the day.
West Coast players of the day.—
Wilson (Waro-rakau), Tyler Shaw (Marist)
Marc Leleifua (Cobden Kohinoor), Bruce
Brunner put in another solid effort against
Suburbs. Ridge Steegh had his best game
of the season topping the tackle count and
scoring four tries. Simon Braxton and Jacob
Walker both had solid defensive games and
made good metres with running, Tyler Bishop
lead the team well with great play making and
last play options.
Connor Ray had some good runs and
finished tackles well with young Jasmine
Short backing up. Joe Short was running and
tackling hard but had to come off early due to
a head knock. Maui Raroa once again made
several breaks out wide.
A slick Hokitika side took the field against
Cobden Kohinoor to register a 36-4 win. The
Keas big for wards were well contained by the
Hokitika defence which only let in one try.
James Crooks for the Keas had his best game
of the season with some aggressive runs and a
tidy kicking game as well. Charlotte Allison
lead the team in the tackle count bringing
anyone who dared come near her. Kane Wall
had a strong game and was unlucky not to
pick up a couple of tries but for some unlucky
bounce of the ball.
Brunner 24, Suburbs 10; Hokitika 36,
Cobden Kohinoor 4.
West Coast players of the day.—
Holden (Hokitika), James Crooks (Cobden
Kohinoor), Alex McCallum (Suburbs), Ridge
Hokitika faced Cobden in Greymouth on
Saturday. The visitors started very fast and
put pressure on Cobden early with everyone
working to get their hands on the ball.
Strong running and great offloads
throughout the game saw Hokitika crossing
for some good tries. Kaleb Holdem, Jimmy
Griffiths-Wright and Aston Wilson all had
big games each scoring double tries. Dan
Treanor was strong again crossing for a good
try and James Baird also scored rounding up
a great game, and also scoring himself team
man of the match.
Other standouts were Vinnie Glass-Stevens
and Campbell Murray who both had an
outstanding defensive game. Most pleasing
was the terrific team defensive effort with the
boys getting big numbers in the tackles and
holding Cobden to only one try. Score was
36-4 to Hokitika. West Coast player of the
day was awarded to Kaleb Holdem.
Suburbs dominated the first half of the
match against Cobden-Kohinoor to jump out
to a handy 26-0 lead at half-time. The second
half belonged to Cobden who rallied to almost
pull off an unlikely victory but it was Suburbs
who triumphed in an exciting game 30-28.
West Coast players of the day were Riley
Pascoe (Suburbs), and F lynn Templeman

New Zealand’s victorious America’s
Cup team have started flogging off
gear in Bermuda while a big welcome
parade is planned in Auckland next
The first victory event will be held
in Auckland from midday on July 6
and will be on land and on water,
Auckland Tourism, Events and
executive Brett O’Reilly said.
“ We really want to make this our
greatest welcome home,” he said.
He said the Viaduct Harbour area
would be used and it was possible
the team would be taken around
the harbour and across to the North
It is also likely the winning team
will be at the third test of the British
and Irish Lions tour at Eden Park.
A civic parade and homecoming for
winning America’s Cup helmsman
Peter Burling is being organised by
Tauranga Mayor Greg Brownless.
It will be the second Tauranga
parade in 12 months to involve
Burling, who was one of the
returning Rio Olympians cheered
on by thousands of spectators last
Wellington Mayor Justin Lester is
keen on a parade in the capital as well
and is already talking up its merits
as a potential venue for an America’s
“Christchurch would love to put
on a celebratory parade for our
America’s Cup champions,” Mayor
Lianne Dalziel has tweeted.
Dunedin is also keen to do
something to mark the occasion.
Back in Bermuda, just a day after
lifting the America’s Cup for a third
time, Emirates Team New Zealand
are selling three support boats.
“It ’s time to let these three well-
loved babies go from the team,” a
listing on Bermuda website Emoo.
bm reads. The most expensive boat is
selling for $US60,000 ($NZ82,445).
New Zealander Sir Russell
Coutts, chief executive officer of the
America’s Cup Event Authority, has
also reflected on the magnificent
America’s Cup in Bermuda.
“No doubt there are a lot of Kiwis
waking up with a headache today,
and they deser ve the celebrations
that will have taken place in Bermuda,
in New Zealand and around the
world,” he said.
“The achievements of their team
are incredible, and in doing so have
captivated the hearts and minds of
millions of sports fans worldwide.”
Some of the most beautiful, iconic
yachts came to Bermuda during the
America’s Cup Superyacht Regatta
and the America’s Cup J Class
Regatta, while the next generation
showcased their talents in the Red
Bull Youth America’s Cup, he said.

An America’s Cup Hall of Fame
designer who helped New Zealand
win the Auld Mug in 1995 died on
the day Peter Burling and his team
won in Bermuda.
American Doug Peterson, a
long-time San Diego Yacht Club
member, died on Tuesday, aged 71,
after battling cancer for some time.
Peterson was a renowned boat
designer in the 1970s and early
1980s, before reviving his career in
He was a key member of the
design teams for America3, who
won the America’s Cup in 1992,
Team New Zealand ’s winning
challenge in 1995, and he aided
Prada’s challenges in 2000 and
Peterson joined with New
Zealand legend Laurie Davidson
to design the Black Magic boats
for the 1995 regatta, after he was
not hired for Dennis Conner’s
Stars and Stripes team for the US
defence in San Diego.
“Black Magic’s advantage in
speed was due in part to Peterson’s
decision to design her with a
narrow beam and a mast positioned
further aft than her conventional
counterparts, establishing a new
paradigm in America’s Cup class
yacht design,” the America’s Cup
Hall of Fame said of him.
In a post on sailing website
sailingscuttlebutt.com, he was
described as “a true genius”, who
had “a laser-like focus” and was
drawing boats as a child, never
wanting to do anything else.
His induction into the America’s
Cup Hall of Fame is scheduled
to take place at the USS Midway
Museum in San Diego in October.
He is survived by four children.
