Winners make a splash Moment of triumph: Peria School raft champions at the great Whangaroa raft race. Victorious Vikings: Winners of the Best Team Spirit. Making a splash at the Great Whangaroa Raft Race was Peria School who beat four other competitors to win the schools division. The event was a huge suc- cess with 14 entries from schools and a number of com- munity teams. Kiwi Can Charitable Trust Whangaroa, a non-profit youth development organis- ation, hosted the event and was overwhelmed by the sup- port. It was a gorgeous day on the Whangaroa Harbour and we had some fearless contest- ants who saddled their entries and burnt some muscle over the 325m (school division) and 500m (open div- ision) course,'' Kiwi Can co- co-ordinator Kate Moss says. Prizes were awarded in each division for best team spirit, most creative/ innovative raft and water safety. In addition, there were more than 30 people who entered the junior Rub- ber Ducky race and at least 100 entered the colouring competition. The open category was a diverse race with nine teams entered, all completing the course with varying degrees of ease. San Kaeo, the Sanfords Fisheries team, stormed across the line fol- lowed by Ngati Rehia Rebels from Te Tii, KTown Shakers (John Argent and family), Can Tiki (Gundry/Mooney families), Fire Floater -- the Kaeo Fire Brigade team, Shark Attack -- the Kiwi Can Team, Team Cruso, Matangirau Rangatahi and finally the Kinetic Kinnons, a brave father -- Doug Kinnon and his sons, Alex, 9, and Henry, 6. It was great to see the community step in to support the day -- from the local mums who made fried bread and cakes to sell and families supporting their teams, to the ambulance, Coastguard, Dive North, NZ Paddle company and volunteer crew who made it all possible. We also had Dani Kaiawe and a team of waka ama paddlers showcase a 12-man waka,'' Ms Moss says. Wind a challenge for football sides Blustery conditions made play a challenge for the match between Kerikeri Bay Builders and defending champions Onerahi. Kerikeri played with the wind at their backs for the first half and had the oppo- sition on the back foot to begin with. Sam Green came close to breaking the deadlock but Onerahi's keeper made a sharp save. Mark Roberts also came close with a stun- ning free kick which just sailed over the upright. Onerahi finally broke away and a mistimed Kerikeri pass found their midfielder who struck the ball first time, catching the Kerikeri keeper flat-footed as the ball sailed into the corner of the net. In the second half Kerikeri continued playing excellent football and finally got some reward with a slick build-up from the back, which resulted in Zdenek Rosa lifting the ball over the keeper. Kerikeri had several chances to seal the victory but the Onerahi keeper had a man of the match perform- ance to keep the scores level. Player of the day was Richard Kearney. Reserves won 4-2. Kerikeri Club's next game is in the Chatham Cup away to top Auckland side Western Springs FC. The match will be played on April 25, kicking off at 2pm. Help put Northland on world rugby map More than 50 rugby clubs and schools from around North- land have been given the chance to have their team colours shown on the world stage as part of the celebrations at Rugby World Cup 2011 in September. All New Zealand rugby clubs, high school rugby teams and referee associ- ations in Northland have been invited to have their players, coaches, referees and volunteers sign a rugby jer- sey that will play a part in festivities to kick off the tour- nament. Northland RFU chief executive Jeremy Parkinson is urging everyone who plays or is involved in club or school rugby to get down to their local club or school and sign their jersey for what will be a unique event broadcast to millions of viewers world- wide. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to have North- land clubs and schools repres- ented on the world stage. This tournament is one for all Kiwis and having our club and school rugby jerseys there will ensure that all players from Northland will be a part of that,'' Mr Parkinson says. The Sign Your Jersey initiative is part of the New Zealand Rugby Union's RWC 2011 Rugby Legacy pro- gramme. Rugby clubs and high schools have been asked to have all their members sign two jerseys, one that will appear in the tournament celebrations and one to keep and display in their clubrooms or school. Players should contact their club or school to find out how they can sign their jer- sey. Clubs and schools need to send their jerseys to Bruce Robertson at Northland Rugby by April 29.
